I have had 2 ectopic pregnancies, removal of my left tube, still have the right tube. I am so afraid to try again, what can I do?

3rd time a charm?: The 3rd time may result in another ectopic pregnancy or not because the conditions that created the obstructions in the tube such as infection/adhesions may also be present in the remaining tube to keep the fertilized ovum from making it to the uterus to implant. Have your GYN consider an antibiotic if he/she suspects infection and treat conditions like endometriosis as needed if present. ...Read more

Because if you have not had it tested either by hsg or laparoscopy with dye injection , you should not try to get preg, cause you could end up with another tubal pregnancy, if the remaining tube is not normal you most likely are better off having it removed if it cannot be adequately fixed, and do in vitro, it does no good as u know to keep having tubal pregnancies. ...Read more
