Because you have had an ectopic pregnancy, you are at a higher risk of this happening again.

Make sure you are not smoking; use caffeine minimally. You should have relations (sex) every 36-48 hours and not daily. Make sure you take a vitamin daily. If you are having trouble getting pregnant, you can have your fallopian tube evaluated, something called an HSG. However, I would not suggest you do this at this point in time.

If you are greater than 35, some would call infertility more then 6 months.
