One Ovary?

I have been noticing for the past few years that I only get my period from one side (I don't mean to be graphic, but I know this because my tampons are always covered on exactly one half). Does this mean I only have one ovary? I have a cousin who was born without an ovary which makes me question if I only have one as well. Any help would be much appreciated!
