I've had 2 ectopics 1 on the left and had tube removed and 1 on the right which I had injection, what are my chances of having a normal pregnancy?

Very low chance: The reason the ectopic pregnancies keep recurring is still present- which is Fallopian tube partial obstruction. As a result, every time you think you may be pregnant you need to be checked immediately for another ectopic to save your remaining right Fallopian tube. IVF is your best chance for a normal intrauterine pregnancy. ...Read more

Endometriosis can cause scarring and increase risk of ectopic pregnancy that way. But usually a functional cyst will not increase risk of ectopic. ...Read more
