Fertility does decrease with age, though you seem to be able to fall pregnant without much difficulty. The fact that you had an ectopic pregnancy probably means that you only have one tube. If the other tube is okay, your chances will be slightly reduced compared to having two healthy tubes, but would still be reasonable.

Best wishes

Cas, I had almost a similar experience. The difference with me is that I had two miscarriages before the ectopic pregnancy in December 2003. I am now 28 weeks pregnant at the age of 35, so it is very possible just relax and you will eventually get pregnant soon.

Take it easy as I was so depressed trying to fall pregnant and that was not helping at all.
