Talk to your doctor about how long to wait after surgery before you have sex (usually 2 weeks). Having sex too early may increase risk of infection. With only one tube, it may take longer to conceive, but it may not. Your body doesn't alternate which ovary releases an egg every month, so the one good side could release an egg one or more months in a row (which would give you the same chance those months of conceiving as when you had both tubes), or your other ovary could be the one to release an egg (and with no tube, you would not be able to get pregnant that month). Just keep having fun trying, and don't get all worked up about when it's going to happen. It will happen when it happens.

I see you are asking me was it quick afterwards, sorry I misunderstood. I did not have an ectopic, I was pregnant with a 12 week fetus in my uterus and an enormous cyst on my ovary. The doctor had to open me up to remove the cyst, ovary and tube. Fortunately I and the baby survived just fine. So i can't answer your question because I remained pregnant the whole time.

I have no idea what you mean by "it was fairly quickly afterwards" ectopics don't occur overnight and certainly not if you needed surgery to remove the tube. Are you already pregnant and afraid it is too early?

You had an ectopic pregnancy and had to have surgery? Then you need to ask the doctor when it is safe to try. I lost an ovary an tube during a pregnancy, the baby was fine but i had a huge cyst and had to have the ovary removed. The good news is even with one ovary and tube i went on to have another baby.
