    I was just curious if any one has heard of any foods that should be avoided to reduce the likelihood of having another ectopic?

    Pre-ecoptic, I was an avid diet pop drinker. Is aspartame bad? I quick drinking it immediately when I started trying to concieve.

    Is there anything that I should be eating to help prevent ecoptic / promote a uterine pregnancy?

    I just found out that I have an EP last Wednesday, so of course I've been reading up, and I honestly haven't come across anything regarding what to eat to reduce likelihood of having another EP. As far as I know, EPs can just happen, or there was some scarring in the tube from pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), or the tube is an irregular shape. EPs can happen anywhere, the embryo might try to implant on or around the ovary, abdomen, cervix, etc. Depending on your age, if you've had any history of PID, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, a series of abnormal paps, you might want to go see a reproductive endocrinologist. I'm hoping to speak to one myself this week as I am 34 y/o and not only is this my second miscarriage in six months but also an EP this time around. I just want to make sure everything is ok with me and my husband because I do not want to have to go through another miscarriage only to find out I could have taken progesterone supplements or had a mass or something that could be removed, that sort of thing.

    I would just go by the healthy eating standards for any pregnancy, and in terms of drinking definitely avoid pop, and anything with caffeine.
