I had an ectopic pregnancy which resulted in the removal of my right tube but they left my right overy. So my question is would an ovulation test work for me or not?

As long as you have another

As long as you have another tube and ovary, then absolutely you can still get pregnant and an ovulation test should work just fine. Even if you had lost one of the ovaries, the remaining ovary learns to compensate and can still have a monthly cycle.

While some ectopic pregnancies just happen with no known cause, some may be linked to untreated sexually transmitted infections, endometriosis, or an IUD. Talk with your health care provider to get a green light before getting pregnant again.
