Had laparoscopy for tubal pregnancy after that what is the possibility of having tubal blockage in that tube?

Which carries the higher risk of ectopic pregnancy, Skyla IUD or the mini pill taken perfectly?

Neither: The IUD increases one's risk for ectopic pregnancy only very very slightly. The mini pill doesn't increase your risk of ectopic. Statistically I wouldn't make a decision based on these 2 forms of birth control vis-v-vis ectopic given how little influence they would have. IUDs are very safe and a lot more effective at preventing pregnancy than the mini-pill. ...Read more
