Can an ovarian removal alter your period?

I had an ovarian torsion removed and a 2nd trimester miscarriage approximately 10 weeks ago.  Since then I have had my period twice and it has only lasted 2 days.  Before the removal of my ovary and cyst my periods would last 5 days.  Can having only one ovary affect the flow of your cycle?

Hi,
How are you? Oophorectomy or removal of the ovary may cause bleeding, infection, and risks of premature menopause which is caused by alteration of the hormones produced in the ovaries. Aside from hormone changes, irregular menstruation may also be due to stress, illnesses ( including the miscarriage)  change in diet or exercise routine,  and recent weight loss or weight gain. If this persists, it is best that you inform your doctor about this. Take care and do keep us posted.
