I was operated last year for a left tubal ectopic pregnancy, what is my chance of getting pregnant again?

A previous history of ectopic pregnancy is associated with a 50 to 60% chance of having a normal pregnancy subsequently among victims. There is however a significantly increased risk of having a recurrent ectopic pregnancy, stated to be about 10%, compared to a risk of 1-2% in the general population, as well as a higher risk of tubal infertility than the general population. So it is advised that anyone with a previous history of an ectopic pregnancy who subsequently miss her period should promptly present to a gynecologist for immediate review to confirm the location of the pregnancy if pregnant. Beyond this, it is important to note that there are other factors that may determine your chances of getting pregnant among which include your age, the integrity of the other fallopian tube and the quality of sperm of your partner. So if you are having difficulty trying to get pregnant for about a year after being treated for an ectopic pregnancy, kindly CHAT WITH OUR CONSULTANTS.
