In brief: No major change
When one ovary is removed the remaining ovary increases it's hormone production to make up for the shortfall so any hormone changes will only be temporary (4-6 weeks at most).
Pregnancy potential also is not affected. Removal of one ovary likely does not change cancer risk.
