In an unstimulated cycle, that is without any medication for ovulation induction,Every month only one follicle reaches the level of maturity and ovulates., generally from alternate ovary.
As you have not mentioned about any ovulation induction medication, I suppose, it was a natural cycle.
So, don't think about any problem with RO.
Also, you would need a few cycles to conceive, if all the other factors for infertility have been ruled out, including husband's semen analysis.
Good luck.

Thank you for your query.
Normally, during each menstrual cycle, a dominant follicle ruptures , that is ovulation occurs, from only one ovary.
So if you were not given medicines to induce ovulation and cause development of multiple follicles, then your report is absolutely normal.
You had one dominant follicle which ovulated ( ruptured ) from the left ovary, which is perfectly fine.
The right ovary did not have any lead follicles, which is also normal.
Regarding conception, please consult a Fertility Specialist, who would guide you for further tests and treatment.
take care.
