how does one develop blighted ovum?

Dr. Yvette Kratzberg

Blighted Ovum: A blighted ovum, also called an anembryonic pregnancy, occurs when an early embryo never develops or stops developing, is resorbed and leaves an empty gestational sac. The reason this occurs is often unknown, but it may be due to chromosomal abnormalities in the fertilized egg. A blighted ovum eventually results in miscarriage.
