I've had an ectopic pregnancy in the past. Am I at risk for having another one if I become pregnant again?
In general, once you have an ectopic pregnancy, your chance of having another one is about 15% — but it depends on your particular situation, the cause of the original ectopic, and how it was treated.
Many women who had an ectopic pregnancy in the past will later have a normal pregnancy. You'll want to talk with your doctor about your particular circumstances.
