Getting pregnany after Ectopic

Patient: How long should I wait to get pregnant after ectopic pregnany. Could I get pregnant without my period starting up again after ectopic pregnany? As my partner and I have been having unprotected sex since my ectopic pregnancy

 

 

Symptoms: Ectopic Pregnancy

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Usually, the time gap advised after ectopic pregnancy depend s on factors like whether that was ruptured or unruptured ectopic, blood loss during that, type of procedure performed to remove the ectopic sac etc.In general around 3 to 6 months gap is advised after ectopic pregnancy to next pregnancy.If you are not using any contraceptive measures, pregnancy is possible after ectopic pregnancy before restarting of menstrual cycles.Because as ovulation occurs before menstruation, there is a possibility of conception during ovulation before menstrual period.Take care.
