Just because you have one ovary, does not mean the time period that your body deems necessary for carrying children shortens. Although rare, early menopause is possible and has many causes. Severe medications, and drugs used for cancer treatment such as chemotherapy have been known to be a factor in early menopause. Regardless of the cause, if you haven't had a period for more than three months your best bet is to check it out with your gyno.

What would happen if i didn't have a ovary?

First, it would depend on why you only have one ovary-- most females have two. But sometimes an ovary is removed because of a disease like cancer, although it's more common to remove both ovaries when cancer is diagnosed. But if for some reason you have one ovary, you would still have your period (although some sources say women with only one ovary go through menopause earlier). And you could still become pregnant (if you wanted to). In fact, unless you have other conditions (like cysts), having only one ovary should not be a big problem in your life.

What will one ovary do after a full hysterectomy?

If you mean by full hysterectomy a total hysterectomy i.e. removal of the uterus and cervix then one ovary will produce the necessary hormones that two ovaries would. You will go into menopause at the time you normally would (average 51.7 yrs). Only if both ovaries are removed will you go into immediate menopause. There is some anecdotal evidence that having a hysterectomy may bring on an earlier menopause than would have occurred without.

Do cats go through menopause?

No. Menopause is the period when women stop menstruating, and since cats do not menstruate in the first place, they cannot go through menopause. Only primates, such as humans and chimps, menstruate. (Cats will bleed a little while in heat, but this is part of the estrous cycle, which is not the same. Estrus in cats is closer to the period right after menstruation in humans.) They don't even go through menopause in the sense of ceasing to experience estrus; cats remain fertile throughout life.

No, menopause is a primate-only event in which menstrual cycles become erratic and then cease. As dogs do not have menstrual cycles, they do not go through menopause.

Late in life, a female dog may permanently go into anestrus, but this is not all that common.

Can a woman have children if she only has one ovary?

Yes it is quite possible. I have friends that were told that their chances would be slim but they were able to conceive without any trouble. Yes, if she has a functioning second ovary and other reproductive parameters are also functioning. Eggs normally come from both ovaries and often in turn. However with only one functioning ovary, an egg can be expelled on each cycle. There is some consideration which must be given to the root cause of only having one ovary. There are conditions which produce only one ovary while also altering other parameters of the reproductive system. You question implied you were only concerned about the "one overy aspect" so the answer is "YES."
