Generally yes: Injectable gonadotropins (FSH, FSH/LH combo) almost always stimulate both ovaries. Any ovulations on the side with the salpingectomy are likely wasted, but you should have multiple ovulations on the side with the remaining tube. good luck.

Not wasted so much as not useful. considering the history of having a right salpingectomy makes the eggs that develop on that side inaccessible to the uterus and therefore spermatozoa, they won't be able to be fertilized unless they are harvested from the maturing folicles and fertilized in vitro. Talk to your doctor for more information about your case in particular.
