Yes: You definitely ovulated. The ultimate measure of ovulation is pregnancy. Blighted ovum most often is just natures way of getting rid of an abnormal pregnancy. most human embryos are not chromosomally normal. some are more normal than others and may make it to pregnancy test or beyond. We can't guarantee a pregnancy but you should do fine. If you have another miscarriage you need an evaluation.
