Our expert says:
Most important aspect is to determine what the status of the remaining fallopian tube is, in terms of patency and normality. The most common cause of ectopic pregnancies is some form of tubal damage. The likelihood of another ectopic pregnancy is greatly increased and is in the region of 60%. Also a chance of conception is only likely when ovulation occurs from the side of the “so called” healthy tube and therefore your overall conception rate is significantly decreased. Ideally you should visit a fertility specialist and have a careful evaluation of the remaining fallopian tube status and some form of directed and purposeful treatment should then be instituted such as careful ovulation induction and close monitoring together with intrauterine insemination. The alternative is in-vitro fertilization.
