Becoming Pregnant Following an Ectopic Pregnancy
An ectopic pregnancy happens when the newly fertilized egg (embryo) attaches outside of the womb. Most (over 95%)1 ectopic pregnancies are tubal, since the Fallopian tubes play an essential role in the transport, fertilization, and early development of the embryo. Tubal pregnancies are due to partial blockages in the Fallopian tubes and/or disruptions to the interior lining of the tubes. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy has been steadily increasing since the 1970s, mainly due to the increased incidence of pelvic inflammatory disease caused by Chlamydia and other STDs. The risk is increased by several other factors, such as:
- Previous ectopic pregnancy
- Tubal damage from infection or surgery
- History of infertility
- Therapy for in-vitro fertilization
- Increased age
Of all the factors listed above, tubal damage is the leading cause for the occurrence of ectopic pregnancies, and most women who seek help with Felopio are dealing with some injury to the upper reproductive tract. An ectopic pregnancy is a very good indicator of trauma to the Fallopian tubes. It is critical for women with such history to address the underlying causes before attempting for another pregnancy. This is especially important for women who have already lost one of their tubes due to a tubal pregnancy, since the loss of the remaining tube would eliminate the chance for a natural pregnancy in the future. For such women utmost care must be exercised to unblock the remaining tube and fully restore the reproductive health, before resuming with trying to conceive. Also, bacterial infections have to be ruled out or treated as needed, because recurrent infections increase the risks of hospitalization for ectopic pregnancy and pelvic inflammatory disease.
“History of an ectopic pregnancy does not reduce the success rate of Felopio, and a healthy natural pregnancy usually follows soon after the Felopio treatment is complete.”
The Felopio herbal treatment has proven to be just as effective with women who have suffered an ectopic pregnancy, provided at least one of the Fallopian tubes is still present. Felopio can heal the tube(s) by removing all blockages and restoring the ciliary motion, thus allowing the tubes to once again effectively transport ova, sperm and embryos. The ultimate result is optimal reproductive health.
