  • I've not had the difficulties you friend has, I'm sorry. There use to be an infertility/pregnancy loss group called Resolve on the internet. Maybe google that in addition to help anyone in CafeMom can give you. The Resolve group by that name was not a group in CafeMom. Maybe there's a speciic group in here too that can help specifically on eptopics or pregnancy loss/fertility difficulties?
    Prayers for your friend and you also.

  • usually there is a predisposition for them, like if her mother or gradmother had them. there is a very high chance of having another if she had one, and now even higher for a third. sorry to say it. she definately needs to talk to her doctor about it ,more.

  • I had an ectopic last year and like your friend I had to have it surgery so they removed my left tube as well. I explained to the doctor that I wanted to have more kids and he said that i could with the other ovary (unfortunally I havent gotten pregnant since that time) but she said that once u have an ectopic u have a higher chance of getting another one.
