Fertility and menstruation after ovarian cyst.

Hello.

I had my right ovary removed in January of this year. My recovery was fairly standard and my period returned in the first month.
However, I know that it's possible to still have a period without actually ovulating and I know that my remaining ovary will pick up the work of the one removed.
My question is how long does that take? Are there complications whilst your remaining ovary gets used to the extra work? What about hormones? Should I expect some months to be different whilst my body settles?
Thank you to anyone that can help :-)

Also, I really wish I had known about this site before my surgery!

Welcome to the community, samfa. I am sorry you lost your ovary but glad your recovery went well.

The remaining ovary does usually take over for the one that was removed. However, I don't know that there is any set time frame for this to occur. While your body is figuring this out, your cycles may be irregular due to hormonal changes. I hope all returns to normal soon!
