Chlamydia: Chlamydia infections that are not diagnosed early, but spread to the uterus and fallopian tubes can cause pid (pelvic inflammatory disease). Pid may damage the tube, which then may result in an ectopic pregnancy. For women, chlamydia infections do not have obvious symptoms and pid can be very difficult to diagnose. Chlamydia can be transmitted to an infant during childbirth if the mother has it. ...Read more

Low chance: If a gestation sac was seen in the uterus on your sonogram, then it is likely not an ectopic pregnancy. Ultrasound is never 100% so i suggest a repeat sonogram be done to confirm a heart beat at a later date. However, if no bleeding or cramping with a gestational sac in the uterus, you are likely on the right track. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not.: Although cesarean sections have many adverse implications for future reproduction, increasing the risk of ectopic pregnancies is not one of them. The adhesions caused by cesarean section typically do not involve the tubes, rather the bladder. When the tubes are affected, infertility can occur, as can ectopics. I am not aware of any good data to prove a link with ectopics, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Minimal risk factor: Any pelvic surgery can increase the risk of an ectopic if any tubal damage is involved or if there are multiple adhesions (scar tissue). Like anyone else, if you have an early pregnancy and experience any pain with or without bleeding, check with your doc asap. You can also ask your doc how your tubes looked at c-section, (for peace of mind). Prior ectopic is a larger risk factor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
