I also had an ectopic pregnancy and yet I got pregnant again within like 9 months! And I was on the Ortho Evra patch at the time. Not saying I never wanted to have kids, but I usually go to school full-time (except for this past Spring semester 2009 where I dropped to part-time) and I'm trying to get my Degree A.S.A.P. cuz I am an older non-traditional student, so time is $$$$.
I never had anything but the methotrexate shot. NO surgery whatsoever, fortunately for me.
I have never had any STD's. However, for myself what most likely caused my Ectopic pregnancy was the fact I have had endometriosis symptoms since age 15 (which may eventually render me infertile). This condition causes me to vomit every period unless I take an OC or some stronger meds. It also causes severe dymennorhea.
This pregnancy (technically my 2nd, but my first child, and also come to think of it, I had no morning sickness the FIRST pregnancy either, lol and I was nearly 8 weeks along when it ended)...I have had no morning sickness (unless you count mild and rare nausea) and that was awesome for a woman whose periods can cause her to throw up at the smell of bacon and other odors, without medication to control it. This time, except for some unexplained bleeding for nearly 2 weeks during my 2nd or 3rd month, which could be because at time I was walking miles and miles each week (I thought, "OH boy, another ectopic?) I was have been doing great and have had no unexplained bleeding since early trimester.
I just had a 3rd trimester check-up today and have gained 22 lbs so far. (4 during first trimester, and 5 lbs a month each month beginning at 20 weeks, believe it or not...). Baby is always active and kicking up a storm. He was boxing in his nearly-15-week ULtrasound, lol. Incidentally, I do absolutely no routine exercise this pregnancy since my bedrest for light bleeding. I do get exercise but it's not a routine and it's very much just "around the house" not planned. (I know, not exactly "super-healthy", but I feel like I don't want to overdo after the bleeding and I have a wonderful OB Team of Doctors and Nurses and Staff support so if I need to step it up, I can and will!)
Timing is everything. Be in a committed relationship. My husband and I are due to have a boy in a few months. The less stress the body is under the better for your maintaining and keeping a healthy pregnancy.
Any questions message me.

I am right now in the process of my 2nd miscarriage. It is a horrible thing, physically and emotionally. I would not wish this pain on anyone. One in every 5 pregnancies ends in miscarriage, and one in every 4 if you are over 35. A true miscarriage occurs during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. After that, it is still possible to lose the baby at any time (though the chances are much slimmer). A loss after the first trimester is considered pre-term labor. There are many things women should avoid during pregnancy to protect their little ones. Changing cat litter, soft cheeses, deli meats, certain wrinkle creams- all of these things can be dangerous to the unborn child. For a more detailed list with explanations of their dangers, see ---. This is a list of things you should do and should not do during pregancy and a great source of information. If a miscarriage is happening, there is unfortunately nothing you can do to stop it. The most common cause of early miscarriages is a chromosomal defect that keeps the baby from developing properly. Even if you do everything right and avoid all the things you should avoid, you cannot keep miscarriage from happening if there was a chromosomal defect at conception. Signs of a miscarriage are cramps, lower back pain, pain in the right shoulder (I had this with both of my miscarriages), bleeding, or a brown discharge. That was the first sign for both of mine. Some people will be able to miscarry naturally with no need for d&c, the procedure used to remove all fetal tissue from the uterus. An ultrasound should be performed to be sure all fetal tissue has dissolved or been expelled. If so, you don't need a d&c. If not, the procedure may have to be performed, or the doctor can give you medication to help you expel the rest. Keep in mind that a d&c scrapes out the ining of your uterus, which can make it harder to conceive the next time because the baby may have difficulty implanting. Also, many woman (like myself) have a tilted uterus, which makes it difficult to see the baby in ultrasound, so I recommend waiting a few weeks for another ultrasound before making a decision to have a d&c. See all the miracle stories on ---. No matter which option you choose, your doctor will need to check your HcG levels (the hormone produced during pregnancy) to be sure they get back down to 0. After that, you should wait at least one normal period before trying again. I got pregant the second time 2 weeks after my first miscarriage (I did not wait for the period) and it ended in miscarriage, also, so I highly recommend waiting for that normal period befor trying again. I sincerely hope you never have to worry about any of this, but that should answer your questions. Good luck!

When it happens, Although you may experience typical signs and symptoms of pregnancy, the following symptoms may be used to help recognize a potential ectopic pregnancy:
Sharp or stabbing pain that may come and go and vary in intensity. The pain may be in the pelvis, abdomen or even the shoulder and neck (due to blood from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy gathering up under the diaphragm).
Vaginal bleeding, heavier or lighter than your normal period
Weakness, dizziness, or fainting
It is important for you to seek emergency care if you are experiencing sharp pain or have bleeding.
Ectopic pregnancies are diagnosed by your physician, who will probably first perform a pelvic exam to locate pain, tenderness or a mass in the abdomen. Your physician will also use an ultrasound to determine whether the uterus contains a developing fetus.
The measurement of hCG levels is also important. An hCG level that is lower than what would be expected is one reason to suspect an ectopic pregnancy. Low levels of progesterone may also indicate that a pregnancy is abnormal.
Your physician may do a culdocentesis, which is a procedure that involves inserting a needle into the space at the very top of the vagina, behind the uterus and in front of the rectum. The presence of blood in this area may indicate bleeding from a ruptured fallopian tube.

Typically you take your cycle length and subtract about 15 days, giving you the day you're most likely to ovulate. You may get a positive result as soon as a few days after you would have missed your period, and you could go a few months being pregnant, still getting a false negative. I'd wait for at least two weeks (before getting your hopes up) before taking a test at home. If it's negative and you still don't get your period, retest in another week or so. If no period and it's still negative, see your obgyn for an ultrasound and a blood test. Your body has to produce enough of a specific hormone to trigger the at home tests to come up positive, and sometimes it just doesn't happen. A blood test can confirm what at home tests sometimes cannot.
