Ectopic pregnancy: If your tube with the ectopic pregnancy was removed, ask your gyn about getting a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) to make sure your other tube is not obstructed (an x-ray/fluoroscopic picture). If open after the x-ray, it is very possible for a normal pregnancy to occur. Test for ovulation with a kit from a drugstore to increase your chances after the HSG. ...Read more
