I had ruptured ectopic pregnancy surgery on 11/30/13. When is it safe to go back to the gym and/or have intercourse?

Depends: The biggest factor depends on whether your surgery was through an 'open' incision (either horizontally, such as a 'bikini cut'; or an 'up and down' incision) or laparoscopically. Certainly by 4 weeks after laparoscopic surgery you should be healed sufficiently to resume exercise and intercourse. Typically intercourse is fine by 4wks after an open incision, but not 'core' exercising. ...Read more

After a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, are my only chances to conceive limited to every other month since I only have one tube?

After a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, are my only chances to conceive limited to every other month since I only have one tube?

Not necessarily: It is still possible for a tube to pick up an egg from the opposite ovary. Sometimes the egg falls down into the pelvic cavity and the tube must reach down to pick it up. This will likely increase the time it takes to conceive. If there is a lot of pelvic scar tissue, then the tube will have a more difficult time picking up that egg. A HSG is a good test to evaluate the remaining tube. ...Read more

Could it be possible for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy to be mistaken for a ruptured large ovarian cyst?

Could it be possible for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy to be mistaken for a ruptured large ovarian cyst?

Anatomy: No. Ruptured Fallopian tubes is a deadly problem.

An ovarian cyst would be seen in the ovary not in the fallopian tubes. ...Read more
