Is it possible only one of my ovaries is working?

SoCalLove:  Just curious to know how you are determining ovulation (temps, OPKs, etc.)?

I think in order to confirm this type of thing, you’d need to discuss it with your doctor. Make sure they rule out PCOS and the like.

It is entirely possible that maybe only one ovary is functioning, but I don’t think any of us could confirm that.

The only thing that you can do to confirm ovulation is to chart using temperatures. An OPK can only tell you that your body is gearing up to ovulate, but does not actually confirm it happened.

Even if you are having long cycles and ovulating, it is still absolutely possible to get pregnant, it just may take longer.

 

Good luck!

SoCalLove:  I agree with the PP. The only way to know 100% that ovulation actually occured is to temp. the other stuff just tells you that you will probably ovulate soon. I sometimes get a few LH surges leading up to ovulation, but the temp change only takes place afterwards. I think it would be impossible to tell anything about the function of each individual ovary without consulting a doctor. There’s so many other factors that can influence irregular cycles.
