Your chances of having another ectopic pregnancy will be affected by your own combination of risk factors (things that increase your risk). These can include smoking, use of assisted reproductive technology (ART) to get pregnant, and how much fallopian tube damage you have.
Your future fertility and chances of having a successful pregnancy in the future will also depend on:
Whether your other fallopian tube is healthy.
The extent of damage to your fallopian tube.
Whether you have a history of infertility.
Early detection is the key to avoiding new tube damage.
As long as you have one healthy fallopian tube, salpingostomy (small tubal slit) and salpingectomy (part of tube removed) have about the same effect on your future fertility. But if your other tube is damaged, your doctor may try to do a salpingostomy. This may improve your chances of getting pregnant in the future.
