Prevention from Ectopic Pregnancy

You cannot prevent an ectopic pregnancy but the risk can definitely be lessened. Some of the steps that you can take to lower the risk are:

  • Limit the number of partners
  • Use a condom to prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases
  • Quit smoking now
  • If you have had an ectopic pregnancy previously, inform your doctor if you become pregnant again. Your condition can then be monitored.
