There is a general misconception about ectopic pregnancy that once you have had the same, there is a good chance of getting it again. But that is just a myth. There are some crucial aspects to keep in mind if you are trying to conceive again post an ectopic pregnancy-
Removal of fallopian tube
The first thing to remember here is that even if a fallopian tube was removed for surgical procedure during ectopic pregnancy, you still have other fallopian tubes working. So there’s no reason for you to start panicking.
Often an ectopic pregnancy is caused because of some illness, which is usually sexual transmitted disease. But in these cases, the illness is treatable and once you have had your complete course of treatment, you can conveniently try again. Do remember that it wasn’t the infection that caused the problem in the first place. The scars left behind with these infections take a little time to heal.
Give your body time
Ideally, most doctors would suggest that you wait at least for 6 months before trying to get pregnant again. Remember that you should give your body some time to heal and this also is essential for the mind. Trying again immediately, might pose a higher risk for further damage to your internal system. Counselling and other measures help in faster mental healing, but with a positive mindset, you really don’t need this - you are strong enough to re-try soon.
Some risks you should be aware of
Some women might have a higher chance of recurring ectopic pregnancy in case they use IUD for birth control, are prone to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), STD like Chlamydia and Gonorrhea or congenital abnormality of the fallopian tube. In such cases, some extensive treatments may delay the process of retrying.
