Question of the Month

Q: My wife 27 years of age experienced ectopic pregnancy with her first expected baby, does she have a chance to be pregnant again?

A: Many people have written to ask me about ectopic pregnancy. This is the medical term for a pregnancy developing outside the womb. It can cause dangerous bleeding and requires surgical treatment.

Ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg does not travel normally into the uterus. This is not a hormonal problem but a local one within the female reproductive organs within the pelvis. As long as one or both ovaries and tubes remain, ovulation and pregnancy are possible. However the scarring resulting from the first ectopic may make pregnancy less likely.

This is very individual and so must be discussed with a gynecologist who knows the details of your situation.

Hope this is helpful.

Sincerely,

Geoffrey Redmond, MD
