Patient discussion about oviductal

Q. She had an infection in her fallopian tubes. She is recovering now, but can she get pregnant again? My sister had a very bad pregnancy where she had lost her first child. She had an infection in her fallopian tubes. As it was an ectopic pregnancy, she had an operation where they made a small incision in the fallopian tube and removed the embryo. She was depressed for quite a while as she was looking forward to enjoying her new baby. She is recovering now, but can she get pregnant again?

A. i think that was an ectopic pregnancy. of course she can get pregnant again, although the past history of tubal pregnancy increases the risk of developing another ectopic pregnancy in the future. but don't worry, all your sister need to is always consult her health and future-pregnancy condition with her ob-gyn specialist.

i believe that what happened to your sister was non-complicated ectopic pregnancy, because the doctor was just doing the minimal invasive surgery in her fallopian tube. it still has the risks of having another ectopic one in her future pregnancy, but with a complete medical check-up and work-up, i'm sure she will just be doing well.

i just wrote a brief note about ectopic pregnancy, in case you want to read that :
