Unclear question: First of all, I am sorry for your multiple fetal losses, however, there is not enough information to answer your question. Critical data such as lmp, manner of pregnancy (iui or ivf) are missing. Talk to your re about your concerns as he/she has all of that data at hand. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello. I am diagnosed with a blighted ovum, 7 weeks and 2 days. The gyne recommends d & c in a week's time. How many cycles must v wait til v try again?

Depends on testing: A blighted ovum means that that portion of the embryo that was to become the baby did not develop properly, but the portion that was to become the placenta did. So you have rising hormone levels and even a gestational sac in the uterus, but the sac is 'empty'. Older women with poor egg quality have higher chances of blighted pregnancy. If there is no genetic issue with you, then <15% chance. ...Read more
Certainly possible: It would be difficult to give you a number or a percent chance. Blighted ovums and early miscarriage are just very common. Unfortunately it can happen again. Assuming you have no medical issues though a normal healthy pregnancy is statistically more likely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Slightly: Statistically people with PCOS are at a slightly higher risk for miscarriage because their ovulations are not as "typical" as non-PCOS pts. If you are taking meds for your PCOS and continue them through the first trimester it can sometimes reduce your risk of miscarriage. ...Read more
Define baby: I believe one legislature just failed to pass a law stating life begins at conception, an interesting idea but one fraught with problems. The blighted ovum is one example of why legislatures need to stay out of this issue. Here a sperm fertilized an egg with just enough information to start the process, but not enough to complete the job. Study of the shed debris often shows chromosome defects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
