Can A Blighted Ovum Happen Twice
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
Blighted ovum: Extremely unlikely that it will occur a second time in a woman's reproductive life unless you have a genetic issue. ...Read more
Not high: The risk is not terribly high for having a second blighted ovum after the first. Generally considered less than 1%, but if you do have the second blighted ovum, then the next pregnancy has about a 30% risk of being abnormal. After 3 abnormal pregnancies the risk is at least 50% for the fourth and about 70% for the fifth. ...Read more

When will i ovulate after a d&c for a blighted ovum? Can it happen as early a 2-3 weeks? Do you always ovulate before first period after a d&c?
Hi, at my 5w 6d gestational sac measured 7 mm. I know that conception happened between 28th feb to 2nd March. Could it be blighted ovum?
Possibly,: but sac diameter as an assessment of gestational age can have an error range of about a week at this stage, so in and of itself, that measurement may not be cause for concern. Remember also that sperm can live several days in the womb, so intercourse on 3/2 could conceivably cause conception up to 3/7 or so. ...Read more
Is a blighted ovum something that occurs naturally or can someone do something early on in the pregnancy that causes that to happen (like taking Xanax before realizing I was pregnant)?

Blighted ovum or potential ectopic? My HCG levels doubled, then dropped twice before rising again. OBGYN is recommending methotrexate.
Good idea: After multiple lab examinations, if there is still nothing seen in the uterus and a rising HCG, you most certainly have an abnormal pregnancy that should be actively managed. A dilation and curettage would help to figure out if the abnormal pregnancy was in the uterus. If it was confirmed that it was not in the uterus, then methotrexate would be a good idea along with continued lab follow up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
