ovarian tumor

I had a tumor on my right ovary 10 years ago and had that and the ovary removed. I had my son 2 years later thank God! But my question is do I ovulate every other month because of only 1 ovary?

Hi there,
Hi There,

The function of the ovary is controlled by the brain.
take a peek at this link:

So the brain tells the ovary to ovulate. When there is only one ovary, she will ovulate monthly
take care
