Pretty good. If your tube did not look bad and your surgeon was able to save it, it's possible to have a normal pregnancy. However, if you had one ectopic you are at higher risk of having a repeat on the same side. Best way to ascertain if your tubes are open or not is to have a hysterosalpingogram (hsg) test.
