@hogoboom2012:  If the ovary is gone, having the tube gone too doesn’t make much of a difference.  Usually if one ovary is removed, the other one takes over and starts ovulating every month.  So you really shouldn’t have much of a drop in fertility at all (maybe a month or two for things to readjust).  Women with one ovary go through menopause on average about two years early (so 49 instead of 51 years old).  Otherwise, it really shouldn’t affect very much.

I know this is a big adjustment, but stay positive.  Think of @harperlynn:‘s mom!

I too had the same procedure done a few years ago where I had to remove my left ovary. 

After the procedure my cycles went back to normal and then they stoped. The other ovary had cysts developing and was preventing me from ovulating. I was told my by dr that ttc would be difficult for dh and I. When we were ready to start the dr put us on chlomid and on our second round we got our BFP!!!! I was the greatest news and the greatest shock to all of us. 

This is just say that even with one ovary and it not functioning optimally we are expecting our little boy on sept 10. So hang on there. There is definitely hope.
