Many women have fertility issues with one ovary, the reason being that they ovulate less. The pregnancy issue for women with one ovary can be avoided by taking some necessary steps. Going by popular perception I would say that it is quite difficult to get pregnant with one ovary but it is not impossible all together.

Get Pregnant With One OvaryThe correct thing to do when trying to get pregnant with one ovary is to get some guidance and follow a systematic procedure. The important thing is to check if you have any menstruation and physical problem before an attempt at conceiving. Or else you may be at risk. Follow the below mentioned steps in order to be successful at your attempt.

Visit a doctor

Visit a doctor and get yourself checked. He or she will do ultrasound tests and blood tests in order to make sure that your ovary is releasing eggs. This visit may also include other tests to determine your physical condition.


Follow a Calendar

Try and use a calendar. Most women ovulate at different times during the menstrual cycle yet some ovulate somewhere between days 11 and 21 of their cycle. The first day of their cycle is always the first day they began bleeding from menstruation, explains the American Pregnancy Association.


The time of intercourse

A woman’s fertility is at its peak before, during and after ovulation. So it would be wise if you would time your intercourse around these days. Have your doctor monitor your follicles’ work by blood work and ultrasound every week. However, you should know that eggs survive less than 24 hours after ovulation and on the other hand human sperm can survive in a woman’s body for several days. Hence, it would make more sense to have sex before ovulation increasing the likelihood of conception.



After having gone through all the necessary steps go for a pregnancy steps. God forbid if your results are negative then do not hesitate to repeat the entire thing once again during your next menstrual cycle. Also visit a doctor if you have not done so yet!


Trying won’t harm anyone, but still you should be aware of the fact that the chances of an egg released from one ovary and reaching the fallopian tube on the opposite side are slim. Yet, with timely precision you can surely get pregnant.
