Getting Pregnant With One Ovary

by Praneetha

Hi, I am 25 years old and got married in 2008.I had a surgery 2 months back due to the rupture and twist of my left Ovary. It has been removed.

I am having regular periods after the surgery.

During periods I am getting heavy pain on right side. After 2 months now I am getting little pain on right side on regular days. My right leg is also paining after this surgery.

Now we are planning to have kids. Can I be able to conceive with one ovary? Should I have any impact for getting pregnancy due to the right side pain?

Please advise me on this.


Hi Praneetha,

A woman with one ovary usually has the same chance of getting pregnant as a woman with two.
As long as the one ovary is healthy and functioning normally, you can have a healthy conception and pregnancy.

If you have regular periods you are most likely fine as far as getting pregnant. If your baseline hormone levels are good and the ovary is functioning, there is a very good chance pregnancy can happen.

Many times when a woman has only one ovary it is a good idea to track basal body temperature and chart ovulation to determine the most fertile days of the month.

This allows you to plan to have timed sexual intercourse during your peak fertility days and increase the chances of conception.

Having pain in your right ovary can mean many things and you need to ask your doctor more on this as ovarian pain can indicate ovarian cyst.

I would recommend following the Ovarian Wise Kit protocol:

The OvarianWise Kit is designed to support the body to maintain the ovarian tissue healthy and to treat ovarian cysts and ovarian pain.

This program helps you to balance your hormones, and dissolve existing cysts through enzymatic therapy and therapeutic abdomen packs.

It also increases blood flow to the ovaries, allowing for the proper flow of key nutrients, antioxidants, and oxygen to the ovaries.

STEP 1: Apply Natural Progesterone Cream To Heal Your Ovaries and Endometrium

Natural progesterone supresses ovulation and allows the ovarian tissue to heal. By applying natural progesterone from day 10 until day 26 for 2-3 months, any scarring or cyst will dissolve and heal naturally. Natural progesterone also helps treat endometriosis and endometriosis pain. This pain becomes more intense during the menstrual cycles and can be present on the ovaries as well as the bowels, etc.

After using natural progesterone cream for 2-3 cycles you can begin trying to conceive and apply natural progesterone only after ovulation is confirmed through fertility charting. This is done by tracking your basal body temperature or by using a fertility monitor like Ovacue.

STEP 2: Take DIM To Eliminate Excess Estrogen

The main cause of ovarian dysfunction is excess of bad estrogen in the body that puts you in a condition known as estrogen dominance.

DIM is a compound that comes from cruciferous vegetables and balances the hormones by breaking down estrogen and removing it from the body. Estrogen is a major culprit to many of the fertility issues women face today.

STEP 3: Enzymatic Therapy

Enzymes help dissolve scar tissue by breaking down fibrin buildup in the body. Enzymathic therapy has been proven effective in treating ovarian cysts and endometriosis and infertility in general. Enzymes should take 1 hour before or after meals.

STEP 4: Castor Oil Therapy

Castor oil packs have been used for centuries to treat inflammation, scars, cysts, endometriosis and menstrual dysfunction. A castor oil pack is done by applying a castor oil to cloth on the lower abdomen and by covering it with a towel and applying a heating pack. If trying to conceive castor oil packs should be used every other day up until ovulation.

I would recommend learning how to do self-fertility massage in combination with castor oil therapy.

Give yourself a few months to heal after surgery. During this time take 4 months to prepare for pregnancy before trying to conceive again and also talk to your doctor and make sure your right ovary is fine. An ultrasound will be able to assess that.

Fertility Blessings!

Ovarian Cyst
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

Since you have regular periods, you will be able to ovulate each month and get pregnant. Often ovarian cysts appear and disappear on their own after a few months.

After having had surgery it can be normal to feel like you do, but since you want to conceive soon it's best not to wait and talk to your doctor about your pain.

Castor oil packs done regularly and self-fertility massage are amazing in this situation.

You should feel benefit right away.

You can also take a homeopathic remedy called Magnesia Phosphorica 30CH (this is sold at your local health food store or online at

Take this remedy 3-5 times a day as soon as you feel the pain and continue until you feel improvement. Homeopathic remedies are safe and non-toxic. This remedy also helps relieve menstrual cramps and helps the body absorb magnesium.

Many blessings!
