Frequently Asked Questions
What is Ectopic Pregnancy?
An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube (tubal pregnancy). An egg cannot survive outside the uterus and it must be treated to prevent serious health complications.
What Happens After an Ectopic Pregnancy?
Depending on severity of symptoms and how early the ectopic pregnancy is discovered, a doctor will recommend either medication, laparoscopic surgery, or abdominal surgery to remove the ectopic tissue. Recovery will take at least several weeks and most doctors will recommend waiting to try to conceive again until after at least two periods.
Can an Ectopic Pregnancy Affect Fertility?
Yes, ectopic pregnancies can have a negative effect on fertility. Having one ectopic pregnancy increases the risk of developing another. Additionally, those undergoing fertility treatments are at an increased risk of developing an ectopic pregnancy. The chance of conceiving after an ectopic pregnancy is also impacted by the health of the fallopian tube, age, and overall health.
Are You More Fertile After Ectopic Pregnancy?
No, your fertility does not increase after an ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancies can damage the fallopian tube, which adversely affects the likelihood of conception. Those that have had an ectopic pregnancy in the past are also more likely to have another one.
Can You Get Pregnant After an Ectopic Pregnancy?
Yes, you can still get pregnant after an ectopic pregnancy. It is important to discuss your reproductive and overall health with your doctor so you can have the best chance of becoming pregnant. Integrating Chinese medicine can also be a great way to improve your fertility and chances of conception after an ectopic pregnancy.
Is It Hard to Get Pregnant After Ectopic Pregnancy?
It is harder to get pregnant after experiencing an ectopic pregnancy. But it is still possible! There are many factors that impact your fertility, including fallopian tube health, which is why it is important to keep your doctor well informed about any health issues, concerns, lifestyle changes, and your goals.
How Long After an Ectopic Pregnancy Can I Get Pregnant?
It is generally recommended that waiting three months (or two full menstrual cycles) is a good amount of time to wait until trying to conceive again. This healing period is crucial for physical recovery, but also for emotional recovery. Consult with your doctor before trying to get pregnant again after an ectopic pregnancy.
Can You Have a Successful Pregnancy After an Ectopic Pregnancy?
Yes, you can have a successful pregnancy after experiencing an ectopic pregnancy. It can be harder to conceive if the fallopian tube was damaged and there is an increased risk of another ectopic pregnancy after having one.
