Is appendicitis or appendix removal and ectopic pregnancy related? Or have an effect on future pregnancy or conception?

In brief: No and maybe

Appendicitis is neither related to ectopic pregnancy nor to future fertility.
An ectopic pregnancy could affect future fertility however.

In brief: No

Neither appendix itself, nor appendicitis are related to ectopic pregnancy.
Removal of the appendix doesn't tell on the risk of subsequent ectopic pregnancy.

In brief: The pelvis

Appendectomy should have no bearing on the fallopian tubes and ectopic pregnancy.
But ectopic pregnancy does interfere with future attempts at pregnancy.
