Maybe: As long as the ovary is producing healthy eggs, a pregnancy is possible. It would help if the other supportive structures like a fallopian tube & uterus were present. Periodic exposure to healthy sperm would complete the requirement.

Yes as long as: The ovary is normal and is still functioning so see your gyn so u can get an ultrasound to make sure it is looks normal and an fsh and lh level on day 3 or 4 of your cycle to make sure u have normal ovarian function.

Can try: if you ovulate on the side of the tube, pregnancy is more likely, although pregnancy can happen even if you ovulate on the other side
