Hello doctor,

I had an ectopic pregnancy. It was my first pregnancy. I am scared to get pregnant again. What kind of birth controls should I use? Can I get a normal pregnancy again?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Ectopic pregnancy is a common condition in females of reproductive age group and there is no need to get anxious for getting pregnant as most of the women with previous one ectopic pregnancy contemplates successful pregnancies in the future. You can use any type of contraception which is suitable for your health but you must avoid intrauterine devices (coils) to avoid the risk associated with these as these coils slightly increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy.
