2. I am planning to conceive. What is my chance of having an ectopic pregnancy?

Your chance of having an ectopic pregnancy is quite low. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy ranges from 1 in 40 to 1 in 100.

However, the risk is high if you had an earlier incidence of ectopic pregnancy. The chance of future pregnancy depends on the type and extent of surgery you underwent during the previous ectopic pregnancy. If the fallopian tubes were spared, it may be as high as 60%. The chances of having a successful pregnancy with one tube removed may be more than 40%.

3. What are the complications of ectopic pregnancy?

Complications of ectopic pregnancy include rupture of the fallopian tubes leading to bleeding inside the abdomen. This is a surgical emergency and requires immediate surgery.
