Our expert says:
There are a few options for you to conceive again, the safest
however would be In-vitro fertilisation (IVF). This technique bypasses the
function of the tube entirely as fertilisation will now occur in the laboratory
and not the fallopian tube. The drawback of this procedure is of course the
cost as it needs to be done at a fertility centre. Alternatively, depending on
where your tube is blocked and how extensive the damage is, it is sometimes
possible to repair the tube. This procedure is not always successful and may
also increase your risk of having another ectopic pregnancy. However, if the
tube is repaired successfully, conception can then occur naturally as long as
there are no other fertility problems and you can then also have subsequent natural
pregnancies in the future.
