Is conception possible with one ovary and one uterine tube ?

Lucy had both her left ovary and right uterine tube removed surgically at age 17 because of a cyst and a tumor in these organs. Now at age 32, she remains healthy and is expecting her second child. How could Lucy conceive a child with just one ovary and one uterine tube, widely separated on opposite sides of the pelvis like this?

Actually, they are not widely separated at all. The tubes and ovaries are relatively mobile within the pelvis. At most times, they are likely lying behind the uterus within close proximity to one another. This is really not such an uncommon scenario.

I believe this answers your questions, good luck to Lucy!
