No, not necessarily. One ovary does not mean you are not ovulating. It's likely that your one ovary will continue to ovulate without the other one. It may mean you only ovulate every other month. Some women have different patterns of ovulation too, so you may ovulate two months in a row, not the next, two more months, etc.


Your ovaries are always working, even if there is only one. I found that with one ovary, I only ovulated about once every other month. My physician told me that the ovaries take turns ovulating (right one month, left the next) usually so I wasn't ovulating as much as I had in the past.
