Is it possible to be pregnant 4 weeks post ectopic pregnancy surgery?

Possible but unlikel: Unlikely, but u need to make sure that your beta HCG went all the way down to less than 5 after the ectopic because depending on what type of surgery u had need to make sure no ectopic tissue was left behind, if beta is neg then that is good if beta is + and it is from the ectopic then u may need Methotrexate to dissolve the rest of the ectopic tissue please call your gyn. ...Read more
