Was Adam androgynous until Eve

So, I was looking at Genesis in the E-Sword bible the other day and was wondering how it was that God made Adam (man) male and female and told him (them) to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth on the 6th day of the creation week, but it would seem that some length of time passed before God got around to forming Eve. Could Adam multiply without Eve? Also note that the plural "them" is not given a strongs number and is possibly a translation addition for clarity (bias).

Gen 1:27 So GodH430 createdH1254 (H853) manH120 in his own image,H6754 in the imageH6754 of GodH430 createdH1254 he him; maleH2145 and femaleH5347 createdH1254 he them.
Gen 1:28 And GodH430 blessedH1288 them, and GodH430 saidH559 unto them, Be fruitful,H6509 and multiply,H7235 and replenishH4390 (H853) the earth,H776 (KJV w/Strongs con.)

Now in Gen 2:18 God explains that Adam needs another someone as a help meet.

Gen 2:18 And the LORDH3068 GodH430 said,H559 It is notH3808 goodH2896 that the manH120 should beH1961 alone;H905 I will makeH6213 him an helpH5828 meet for him.H5048 (KJV w/Strongs con.)

God then took flesh and bone Gen 2:23 out of Adam to form the woman (womb and man – according to Webster). Her very identity was taken out of man in the form of flesh and bone. It would seem that God took the womb and mabey even pelvic bone from Adam to form Eve, so Adam called her woman (womb-man).

WOMAN, n. plu. women. [a compound of womb and man.]… (Webster dictionary)
Gen 2:21 And the LORDH3068 GodH430 caused a deep sleepH8639 to fallH5307 uponH5921 Adam,H121 and he slept:H3462 and he tookH3947 oneH259 of his ribs,H4480 H6763 and closed upH5462 the fleshH1320 insteadH8478 thereof;
Gen 2:22 And(H853) the rib,H6763 whichH834 the LORDH3068 GodH430 had takenH3947 fromH4480 man,H120 madeH1129 he a woman,H802 and broughtH935 her untoH413 the man.H120
Gen 2:23 And AdamH121 said,H559 ThisH2063 is nowH6471 boneH6106 of my bones,H4480 H6106 and fleshH1320 of my flesh:H4480 H1320 sheH2
