Eptopic Pregnancy
Morning Doc,

I am 6 weeks pregnant and was wondering what are the chances of me having a eptopic pregnancy. My sister was also 6 weeks and lost the baby on Thursday due to an eptopic pregnancy. I have not yet went for a check up or a scan and this is worrying me a lot. I have waited 13 years to fall pregnant again and i am 29 years old. Please help me ease my mind.

Dear anon B

Fortunately there is no definite famial trend to ectopic pregnancies and therefore is very unlkely to occur. If an etcopic pregnancy arises,it will be purely coincidental.
