Tubal Pregnancy

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
This past September, I had a tubal pregnancy and I really want to have a child. Is there any way that I can still have a child and have a full term pregnancy?

ANSWER

Absolutely!! As long as you still have one good tube and a functioning ovary on that side and a good uterus, it is certainly possible. They should have told you after your tubal pregnancy if there would be any problem, but you could still ask them, just to be sure. Good luck!
