Hello shehnaz;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you have been recently operated and got Laparotomy done you should give a gap of atleast 3 months before trying to conceive.After 3 months you can again try for conception and even get the medicines started for it.There can be a normal pregnancy even with a single fallopian tube so no need to get disheartened and confused.

Hi shehnaz,
Welcome to HCM.
It is very unfortunate that you had an ectopic pregnancy, but you need not loose hope. since you still have left tube. As for starting treatment, I personally think you should take a few months break to let every thing settle down, as you had a surgery recently.
Wish you all the Best.
