Hi there.

Thank you for placing your question.

Your wife has suffered a left sided tubal pregnancy. This is also called an ectopic pregnancy and is due to a fertilised ovum not being able to return to the uterus for implantation after conception.

Only her Gynecologist is in the best position to say whether or not she needs a scraping of her womb. My own feeling is that, given that she has normal periods again now, she probably will not need any further intervention.

I hope this helps and that you can accept this answer.

Wishing your wife good health.
