how long does it take women to get pregnant after an ectopic pregnancy with one fallopian tube?

Depends: This is going to depend on if you have scarring in the one fallopian tube and if your partner does not have any sperm problems. If your tubes are clear and the sperm healthy you could get pregnant as soon as you start the process. Good luck see your Gynecologist/Physician for more answers.

Depends but not long: Depending on how far along in the ectopic pregnancy you were, your ability to get pregnant again could happen even before your next period. Once you have a period you're back on the same monthly cycle as before and should assume you can get pregnant any time. A word of caution: Your risk for ectopic pregnancy goes up if you've had a previous ectopic or pelvic surgery - give yourself time to heal.
