Will Ectopic Pregnancy Affect Future Fertility?
I had an ectopic pregnancy that resolved itself without surgery. How common are ectopic pregnancies and will this affect my ability to become pregnant again?Question:
Ectopic pregnancies are more common as women age. For all races (the rate is higher in non-white populations), ages 15 to 44, the rate is 10.7 per 1000 pregnancies.
As you might imagine, whether or not a woman goes on to have a successful pregnancy depends upon the reason for the ectopic pregnancy, if one can be ascertained.
Most women who have had one ectopic go on to achieve a successful pregnancy, but the risks are much higher if you have had two or more ectopic pregnancies.Answer:
