Hello...I have a d& c for blighted ovum after a 8.5 weeks pregnancy. Want to know when should I start for ttc and what is the chance of another b.O?

3 months: A good rule is to wait for at least 3 normal periods before you attempt pregnancy again. This allows for the inner lining of the uterus to get back to normal. The chance of another bo is not increased because you had 1 bo, therefore it is the same, less than 5% of diagnosed pregnancies.

All possible: need to be followed to see what the next value is by your doctor (which is whom I assume is ordering these tests)
