Blighted Ovum Hcg
I had a d&c for a blighted ovum 2. 5 weeks ago. Negative pregnancy test yesterday so hCG is gone. Now ovulation symp, can I conceive so soon after?
Yes: Yes you can. But I would recommend waiting a month to try, . That allows turnover of the uterus so you are not at a higher risk of miscarriage due to the uterus not being ready.
Blighted+ovum+hcg+levels I am 9 weeks 4 days they did an ultrasound yesterday and all it showed was a sac no fetal pole nothing my level was 35000?
Blighted ovum: Unfortunately what you are describing is consistent with a blighted ovum. This is where an embryo implants into the uterine lining but the embryo or baby part doesn't grow where as the placenta part does. The gestational sac grows continuously without the baby. This event can continue growing for weeks. At times the patient will elect to undergo a dilation and curettage ending this abnormal pregnancy. If one elect to allow nature to take it's course then this will occur over weeks to possibly a month or so.
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.
Could I have a blighted ovum? Dpo 14 hCG level 12.5. Dpo 17 hCG level 36.7. Dpo 20 hCG level 160.3. Dpo 23 hCG level 506.2.
What is the timing?: What is the time difference between the results?
My hCG level went from 386 wk 4 to 5356 in wk 5. What are the chances of a blighted ovum? Will ur hCG levels rise tht much in 1 wk if u hv an empty?
US at 5w5d gest sac meaures 5w1d but yolk sac is seen. My OB is dx with blighted ovum due to HCG being over 7000, stating a fetal pole should have been seen. Is this accurate?
Rely on ultrasound: It is true that an HCG of 7000 means that you should see a fetal pole. But the HCG is a less important tool now. It is very important early on to differentiate an ectopic. Your ultrasound shows that the pregnancy is in the uterus and not an ectopic. It's ok to wait and repeat the ultrasound. There is no harm in waiting one week and looking again.See 2 more doctor answers
I have a blighted ovum at 15wks. My Hcg level 2 weeks ago was 18000 & drops to 1600 yesterday. Is this a sign of upcoming miscarriage?
YES: Probably- please consult your OB-GYN ASAP.Get a more detailed answer ›
Do you think that an hCG level on apr 14 of 958 and then one on apr 23 of 14885 indicates a blighted ovum. The ges sac is present at 5weeks 5days.
US is more accurate: There is a wide range of "normal" beta-hcg levels. It is difficult to draw meaningful conclusions based on the 2 numbers you provided. If dates are correct, a transvaginal ultrasound should show a yolk sac and fetal pole by 5 weeks 5 days. It could be the dates are off a bit in which case it may just be too early. A follow-up ultrasound can determine if this is a viable pregnancy.
U/s scan this wk (supposed to b 7 wks) but blighted ovum no fetus just sac (6wks). Hcg 16000 then 15000 2days later. U/s says some blood seen. M/c?
Miscar: Unfortunately, a falling hcg, and no indication of fetus on u/s are indicators of a miscarriage.See 1 more doctor answer
5 weeks after m/c blighted ovum medically induced still bleeding scan shows no tissue hCG is zero. Period?
My Hcg levels have more than doubled, 9/11 hcg was 17 9/15 HCG was 120 and 9/17 HCG was 287. progesterone 9/11 was 29. Could this be a blighted ovum?
Too early: Your levels are rising normally so at this time everything looks ok. A blighted ovum can not be diagnosed at this time as it is too early. Everything is rising at normal levels so there is no reason to suspect it at this time
I have had 1 blighted ovum and I am now pregnant my hCG was 699 now 1375 in 48 hrs and progesterone is >40. are these numbers good? Bo?
Yes: Very good. If you were my patient, I would bring you in for an ultrasound in 2-4 weeks.

Blighted ovum 5 mths ago, pregnant now LMP sept 14 hCG 699 48hrs later 1375 progesterone >40. are these good numbers? Could this be b/o again?
Looks good!: Those are good numbers, so everything looks good at this point.
Unstable periods last period nov 21st last sexual encounter dec 8th hCG dec 27th 986 jan 2nd 7000 jan 9th 20000 just sac on sono. Blighted ovum?
Maybe: You will have to analyze this with your doctor who has much more information than us.
Had 2 healthy pregnancies. Now had a blighted ovum in Feb and am currently pregnant but have low HCG and been put on progesterone. What's going on?
Unclear: Not sure what you mean by having a 'low' HCG. Typically you are doubling appropriately or you are not. The progesterone is usually supplemented if it has been shown to be low for the gestational age. You have two term, uncomplicated pregnancies. The blighted ovum is a fluke occurrence that cannot be corrected for. Not sure what is going on. Talk to your doctor
