I would not think an ectopic is any more likely in the situation you describe. Surgery on the tubes might make an ectopic more likely but not on the ovaries.

If the tube you had a Etopic pregnancy in was not removed then yes you can become pregnant. Otherwise no.

You certainly can go on to have a healthy pregnancy or pregnancies after having an ectopic pregnancy. If you had your tube removed, and still have one working tube and ovary, your chances of getting pregnant each month are simply half that of a woman with 2 functioning ovaries and tubes. This is because your ovary will most likely only release an egg every other month, as it always has.

If your tube was removed with the ectopic pregnancy it won't grow back. You should still be able to get pregnant via your other tube but if that wasn't an option, IVF would be available to you to get pregnant.

There may be nothing you can do other than use IVF for your pregnancy (although IVF itself carries an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy). Talk with your health care provider about options.

An ectopic pregnancy is a complication of pregnancy in which the fertilized ovum is developed in any tissue other than the uterine wall.

Yes, you do. An ectopic pregnancy is just like a "regular" pregnancy for the first few weeks. Everything feels the same. An ultrasound is done early in a pregnancy to check things out, and if a pregnancy is ectopic, a good ultrasound technician will be able to spot it. There is no other non-invasive way to discover an ectopic pregnancy, and because of the risks posed by an ectopic pregnancy, it is critical to discover it early - if in fact there is one. Ectopic pregnancies are invariably life-threatening events, and prenatal care is important for that and many other reasons.

An ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilised egg attaches itself outside the uterus. The most common place where the ectopic pregnancy occurs is the fallopian tubes. Other possible areas where the ectopic could occur are the ovaries, abdomen and the cervix. The cause for ectopic pregnancy is mostly unknown. However endometriosis, any surgery to the abdomen, previous pelvic inflammatory disease all increase the chances of an ectopic pregnancy.

An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fetus implants somewhere other than the uterine lining. Most of them occur in the fallopian tubes, also known as a tubal pregnancy.

You should still be able to get pregnant. If the other pregnancy was recent, then it is more likely you will be able to get pregnant because you are very fertile after a pregnancy

An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the baby starts to develop outside the womb (uterus), usually in the Fallopian tube. An ectopic pregnancy is a surgical emergency and cannot be "terminated" by any other means. NOTE: This is not a termination of a pregnancy-- that can only be deemed "termination" if the egg implants in the uterus.

With an ectopic pregnany there will be severe pain on only one side of your lower abdominal. (where your fallopian tube is) Also there could be other symptoms such as fever, vomiting, nausua, and bleeding. But your period has cramping across your abdominal region and an ectopic pregnancy has SEVERE pain in one area, left or right side.

You get pregnant using the same method as you did the first time! Just becasue on fallopian tube has been removed doesn't mean the other won't function perfectly well.

User Avatar

Yes it is possible, because say for example, you had an ectopic pregnancy in one fallopian tube, then you could still have a pregnancy in the uterus or another ectopic pregnancy in the other fallopian tube or somewhere else because the other fallopian tube is still carrying the egg down to the uterus.

An ectopic pregnancy, also called eccysis, is a pregnancy where the fertilized ovum from the ovary implants itself somewhere other than the uterus of the woman.The difference between an ectopic pregnancy and a tubal pregnancy is that "ectopic" refers to an egg that implants itself anywhere that is not the inside of the uterus; while "tubal" is a type of ectopi pregnancy where the egg implants itself somewhere within the fallopian tube. However, because tubal pregnancies are the most common type of ectopic pregnancy (over 95% frequency in natural conception), the words "ectopic" and "tubal" are often used interchangably.

Ectopic TreatmentsIf the mother is well and stable, the pregnancy could be absorbed gradually. Ectopic can be treated medically with a drug called methotrexate which will shrink the pregnancy in the tube. Medication is done only if the pregnancy is in its early stage. The laparoscopic method is the other method where the pregnancy or the tube itself is removed.Usually people prefer to remove the fallopian tube to avoid further ectopic pregnancy. The last method is the common open surgery. The risks involved in surgery and medication of ectopic pregnancy is that there are chances that the fertilized egg gets ruptured inside the tube which leads to vaginal bleeding and should be treated immediately. Thus prevention is the best cure for ectopic pregnancy.

The main problem with ectopic pregnancies is that they must usually be terminated. These happen when the fertilized egg lodges itself somewhere other than in the uterus, most often in the fallopian tubes. If an ectopic pregnancy occurs, then the egg must be removed, and the pregnancy ended. If this course of action is not taken, then the developing fetus may break through the walls of the fallopian tubes, which could put the life of the mother in serious danger.

If it was an ectopic pregnancy, you would still show positive on a pregnancy test. Do you have any other pregnancy symptoms? I would not consider pregnancy unless you feel you may be pregnant from some other sign.

User Avatar

an ectopic pregnancy has the same symptoms and signs as a regular pregnancy and you still develop the hormones you would with a normal pregnancy. The human chorionic gonadotropin levels are what cause the pregnancy test to read positive. All pregnancies have hcg levels that should be doubling every other day in early gestation.. an ectopic pregnancy may test negative if taken too early, or too late because the body will eventually,(around 6-11 weeks) begin to try to expel the pregnancy when hormone levels begin to drop when the fetus is no longer viable and must be removed Hope it helps!

Intrauterine pregnancy means that the pregnancy (fetus) is inside the uterus where it is supposed to be and not ectopic (in the tubes or anywhere other than the uterus).

Well there are usually a small handful of possibilities that comes to treating an ectopic pregnancy. One, the ectopic pregnancy dies and the mothers body reabsorbs the egg and at times is never even detected and the woman might have never even known she was pregnant. If you encountered a positive pregnancy test then a later did another one and it came back negative, that could have been a possibility that it was an ectopic pregnancy. Or the other possibility with an ectopic pregnancy is that the tube that is holding the ectopic pregnancy may rupture causing severe abdominal pain and may cause extreme complications and surgery may be needed. If the ectopic pregnancy is detected by a physician, then he/she may prescribe a drug called methotrexate, which is injected into a muscles and ends the pregnancy. If the embryo is small enough doctors can remove the embryo through laparoscopic surgery and can usually save the tube. In this situation, a general anesthetic will be used and you will need to take about a week to recover. * http://www.multikulti.org.uk/en/health/ectopic-pregnancy/ * http://www.babycenter.com/0_ectopic-pregnancy_229.bc?articleId=229&page=4 * http://www.medinfo2004.org/get-to-know-about-ectopic-pregnancy-174/ You will most likely have to undergo minor surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy or you can be prescribed medication that will end the pregnancy.

It is when the fertilised egg plants anywhere other than in the uterus/womb and if this is the case the pregnancy cannot continue. Sometimes the body rejects the egg naturally and other times it has to be removed through surgery or an injection.

Hi, I have had a previous ectopic and currently want to try for another baby, this is some of the information which was given to me."Previous ectopic - about 10-20% of those attempting pregnancy after one ectopic will have another.""The risk of another ectopic depends on several factors, in particular the type of surgery that has taken place, the presence of any damage to the other tube and whether there were any difficulties conceiving first time around. Studies that compare removing the tube (salpingectomy) with opening it at the time of surgery and removing the pregnancy (salpingostomy) have found that when the other factors above have been controlled for, the risk of repeat ectopic is about 9% if the tube is removed and 12% if the tube is left behind. There is no difference in outcome whether the operation was an open one or key-hole surgery was used (laparoscopy), but recovery is certainly quicker with the key-hole option.s mentioned above, after having an ectopic pregnancy, a woman is at risk of it happening again (though it is more likely that the next pregnancy will be in the right place)."So I would say be cautious and discuss it with your Dr or Midwife before you try to get pregnant again, they will probably offer you early scanning to try and avert any problems early on in the pregnancy.Good Luck

Ectopic pregnancy An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg attaches somewhere other than in the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube (tubal pregnancy). Because an ectopic pregnancy can cause life-threatening complications, the pregnancy must be ended with medicine or surgery. When a fertilized egg attaches to a fallopian tube, it can be dangerous because the pregnancy can break into blood vessels. If a tubal pregnancy is not detected and treated early, the blood vessels may burst. This can be a life-threatening situation and requires emergency surgery. Pelvic inflammatory disease or tubal surgery increases the risk of having an ectopic or tubal pregnancy by creating scar tissue that may block the fallopian tube. Ectopic Pregnancy - Symptoms An early ectopic pregnancy often feels like a normal pregnancy. A woman with an ectopic pregnancy may experience common signs of early pregnancy, such as: A missed menstrual period. Tender breasts. Fatigue. Nausea. Increased urination. As an ectopic pregnancy progresses, however, other symptoms develop, including: Abdominal or pelvic pain, usually 6 to 8 weeks after a missed period.4 Pain may get worse with movement or straining. It may occur sharply on one side at first and then spread throughout the pelvic region. Vaginal bleeding that may be light or heavy. Pain with intercourse or during a pelvic exam. Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting (syncope) caused by internal bleeding. Signs of shock. Shoulder pain caused by bleeding into the abdomen under the diaphragm. The bleeding irritates the diaphragm and is experienced as shoulder pain. Source: http://www.webmd.com/baby/tc/ectopic-pregnancy-symptoms

No, but, it would be called an "Ectopic pregnancy". It is usually diagnosed within the first 2 months of pregnancy, possibly before you know you are pregnant. The symptoms may be mild or they may be severe and dangerous. They can be the same as the symptoms of early pregnancy or other less serious conditions. Possible symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy are: 1. missed period or abnormal bleeding 2. pain in the lower abdomen or pelvis 3. symptoms of pregnancy such as breast tenderness or morning sickness.
