Dr. Jacobs,
My husband and I had our first cycle of ICSI in Jan. 2006, we achieved a multiple pregnancy and have a set of B/G twins. During the pregnancy however, at 17 weeks gestation I had to have surgery to remove my right ovary and fallopian tube. I had OHSS due to aggressive amounts of fertility drugs used. My question is this, My husband wants to attempt this again in a year, is it possible with one ovary they harvested 22 eggs from me in 06, but I was 33 if we attempt again I will be 35. They said my egg quality was excellent. Any insight would be helpful.

Thank you,
Sylvia Blanton

Since your right ovary is gone, by definition, you have diminished ovarian reserve. You can still do IVF with only 1 ovary. You will probably not get as many eggs as with 2 ovaries, but we do IVF for women with only 1 ovary and the chances of pregnancy are about the same as if they had both.
Good luck.
