Ectopic Pregnancy Prognosis
The chance of recovery from ectopic pregnancy is very good if it is diagnosed and treated early. Having had an ectopic pregnancy increases the likelihood that a subsequent pregnancy will also be ectopic. Talk with your health care professional (an obstetrician is a medical specialist) about your concerns for future fertility and your risk of another ectopic pregnancy. Should you become pregnant again, contacting your health care professional early on is very important to obtain the necessary tests to make sure your pregnancy is inside the uterus.
