chances of conceiving after ectopic pregnancy
Hi there,

Last year september I had an ectopic pregnancy, my doctor first thought it was my appendix as I had severe abdominal pain and a sharp pain in my right leg, only to discover in theatre that my left fallopian tube had ruptured due to an ectopic pregnancy. The damage to my fallopian tube was repaired but I want to know how likely it is to conceive after having my fallopian tube damaged.

It depends whether the other one is okay. A damaged tube, even if repaired is unlikely to function as normal.
