Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.

Having had one ectopic pregnancy generally means that the chance of a future pregnancy being ectopic is around 20% This tends to be true regardless of the type of treatment you had for the ectopic, and whether or not the tube was removed. So with any future pregnancies, it's usually best to see your doctor early. It's usually once we can see a sac inside the uterus on ultrasound that we can know it's not ectopic. Best wishes.
