im a bit confussed can you tell me if after having both my tubes removed from ectoic pregnancies can i still get pregnant and it attach itself to my ovaries or somewhere near there as after having my last ectopic the dr said i need to always use contraception as im very likely to get pregnant again i didnt think this was possible as i thought it was like having a sterilisation done
im now worried as i dont want this to happen again as i was seriously ill with both pregnancies nearly bursting
if this is a possibilty then i need to know as i'll have to protect myself i.e sterilisation
thankyou for your info on this matter really appreciated

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

In your case it appears as though there has been partial removal of tubes. Hence it is possible for the tubes to be close to the ovaries and result in pregnancy. Also chances of ectopics remain high.

So if you do not want pregnancy in future, then you should go for clamping of tubes or for a method of contraception as advised by your doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
