thanks for using health care magic
The type of surgery done for tubal ectopic pregnancy is excision of the tube and it does not affect the ovaries. However, a previous ectopic pregnancy gives you an increase probability of having another ectopic pregnancy which could be disastrous if not diagnosed early enough to treat medically rather than surgery.
Concerning, your fertility, there is no need to worry about, cause the other tube is still available though its hard to say if the underlying problem that caused the ectopic pregnancy has also affected the other tube.
What i will advice you to do is to have close contact with your doctor, immediately you miss your period, you should do an ultrasound to get the location of the pregnancy.
Best regards and hope this helps you
