About 50% to 60% of women conceive spontaneously after one single ectopic pregnancy and the remaining 40 to 50% might need some form of assisted reproduction which is based on the other co-factors that exist and your age by the time you are planning a 2nd pregnancy. One of the fascinating aspects of ectopic pregnancy is the management of ectopic in the present era.
This is one of the greatest miracles of modern medical science. In the 1950s, if somebody had an ectopic pregnancy, a significant number of women used to die. With the advent of pregnancy card tests between 1970 to 1980. 50% of them were saved by early diagnosis and surgery. When it came to the 1980s with the advent of ultrasound and laparoscopy, a significant amount of deaths are avoided. With the accessibility of trans vaginal ultrasound and serial HCG monitoring now in 2020, very few or hardly any women die.
Earlier an ectopic pregnancy was considered death for 50% of the women but now it has become a good quality of life following early treatment. That means saving lives in 99 percent of situations. This is a major milestone in the field of reproductive medicine, obstetrics, and gynecology. This century has brought forward to us the advantages of ultrasound, HCG monitoring, and minimally invasive surgery.
