If I had a blighted ovum does this mean I do ovulate and I am able to have a baby ?

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. ...Read more

See a specialist: You should have ovulation return in about a month after a miscarriage. There are reasons for no ovulation, including the tests you are using are incorrect. Check your bbt, opk and then your doc can also look at ultrasound and hormone levels in some cases to make a diagnosis. Failing to ovulate is usually an easy problem to correct. Best wishes. ...Read more

Diagnosed with blighted ovum. blood hCG =271. Could I have ovulated that day? Or would it take at least 14 days for another ovulation?

Diagnosed with blighted ovum. blood hCG =271. Could I have ovulated that day? Or would it take at least 14 days for another ovulation?

HCG levels: HCG is produced from a pregnancy, and "271" is very low. Ovulation does not cause HCG production. If you had a "blighted ovum" and the HCG is still measurable, there is still viable tissue inside your womb. You may need a minor surgery procedure to clear this from your womb (uterus).. Once the HCg is zero, ovulation may occur about 2-3 weeks later or more. ...Read more

This : This is a very difficult and anxiety provoking situation. Honestly nothing but time will give you answers regarding the progression of your pregnancy. The good news is 2/3 people felt confident in the progression; this means the odds are on your side. My advice for you is to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. If it does not work out this time, you will try again and have success in the future. Best of luck to you. ...Read more

Concerning: If you are truly 6 weeks 5 days, one would expect to see a heartbeat. However, sometimes pregnancies implant later than expected so it is worthwhile check in one more time just to be sure even though the odds are not good. ...Read more

Repeat Sono.: The HCG levels you provide are meaningless without a times scale. You are about 8 days less along than would be expected from the lmp. Could be late ovulation vs blighted ovum. A repeat sono in a week will answer the question. If viable there should be an embryo and a heartbeat. Good luck. ...Read more
