natural birth after ectopic

I have read that once you have a c-section you cannot have natural birth again. i had an ectopic pregnancy two years ago and as a result i was operated and my one tube was removed. the op/cut looks like the one for c-section. now i'm preggies and i want to know if i have an option of a natural birth. is it safe?

With a caesarean, there is a cut in the uterus. This is not the case with an ectopic pregnancy, so it should not affect giving normal birth.
