Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

With two prior ectopic pregnancies, and a remaining tube, you are at remarkably increased risk for a recurrent ectopic pregnancy. As you know, ectopic pregnancies are LIFE-THREATENING PROBLEMS. You need to call your doctor immediately for a blood pregnancy test. Regardless whether this is positive or negative, you need an ultrasound of the uterus as well.

I hope that this helps and good luck!
