Can you explain if it's true that retroverted uterus has to do with misdiagnosed blighted ovum?

It does not: Retroverted uterus just refers to the position of the uterus in the pelvis - it is tilted backwards instead of tilted forwards. It is normal. Blighted ovum has nothing to do with the position of the uterus in the pelvis. ...Read more

I'm 9weeks pregnant, doc said my uterus sizeis about 10weeks, does the uterus usually grow if i'm having blighted ovum or if the baby is not growing?

I'm 9weeks pregnant, doc said my uterus sizeis about 10weeks, does the uterus usually grow if i'm having blighted ovum or if the baby is not growing?

Tomato Tamahto: 9 weeks, 10 weeks. Yes, the dates are important, but to a certain extent this is an exact science, and to another extent this is an inexact science. If you have an ultrasound measured in millimeters that indicates a certain number of weeks, fine. There are ranges that are acceptable and normal. I would not quibble about 1 week - i would worry if you were a month off! measure again in a month. ...Read more

Am 10 weeks pregnant, saw gestation+yolk sac on us when iwas 5weeks , my uterus size is 10 weeks, do I still have the chance to have a blighted ovum?

Yes: A blighted ovum means a pregnancy with a sac but no fetus. Regardless of the size of your uterus, at 10 weeks you should see a fetus (with a heart beat) on ultrasound or hear a heartbeat on doppler. If not, you may have a blighted ovum. ...Read more

U need advice?: This sounds like a complex problem, and it certainly has distressed you. I would try to arrange a visit on HealthTap prime as there is not enough space in these postings to get enough info to make a diagnosis. Also, there will probably be some back & forth that is necessary. Alternatively, seek a 2nd opinion from another Obstetrician / Gynecologist in ur area with the test results in hand.

I am 9 weeks pregnant, my ultrasound reveals retroverted uterus, no embryonic development.. My doctor said it's blighted ovum. Is it 100% accurate ?

Likely correct: If the ultrasound was performed with the endovaginal probe, a viable pregnancy would easily be confirmed. The absence of embryonic development is either from blighted ovum or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. ...Read more
