  • If you have allowed your body to heal for a year you should have no problems trying again. Good luck this time!

  • You should be perfectly ok to get pregnant again, but you could be at a higher risk for ectopics.

  • Your not alone!!!! I 2 went through the same thing. Last year in April I had an ectopic preg. and they 2 had to remove my tube. I want another baby so bad, but it just won't happened. For the month of Dec. I didn't receive my period and I thought oh yes this is it but nothing my period didn't end up coming until the 20th of Jan. So now I'm waiting hopefully this will be the month. But when I went to the doc. he said not to worry that it will happen. So baby dust to you and wish you the best.

  • thank you all for answering, especially blueorpink. it helps to know that i am not the only one who is dealing with this. baby dust to you...let me know how it goes this month. i have noticed that my periods have gotten longer and longer as the months go by. one month it was 36 days. most of it around 33 days. the last time i talked to my doc he said of course to wait a year to heal and that i will have an 80 percent chance of getting pregnant and to have a healthy one. i dunno..all the research on the internet says less. i hope he is right. i will consult with him very soon.
