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

What did uer OB say?: What is your Progesterone level, a high one is good a low one is not good, should be able to see a sac at 5 weeks and should be able to see a ht beat sometimes at 6 weeks depending on the person and theus machine but definitely by 6 1/2 – 7 weeks. ...Read more
I had a blighted ovum with my first pregnancy, I found out I am 6 weeks 3 days pregnant now, what are my chances of having another blighted ovum?
Low: I think your chances of this happening again are low. Blighted Ovum is an out-of-date term for which is now called an Anembyronic pregnancy. These typically do not have a fetal pole (a tiny baby). If you based your current gestational age on a regular period cycle, then you should be able to see this fetal pole and likely the heart beating on ultrasound by this point. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello... I have a d& c for blighted ovum after an 8.5 weeks pregnancy. Want to know when should I start for ttc and what is the chance of another b. O?
1 month: I would advise waiting one month that allows the uterine lining to turn over 1 full time. You can wait longer if you like. It should not predispose you to another miscarriage but the general risk of miscarriage is around 25%. ...Read more
How viable pregnancy wth increasing bhcg lvls. Wk 4 (8000hcg); Wk 5 (24000); Wk 8 (174000). Is there a chance of blighted ovum? In 2 wks will be U/S.
Numbers are good: But nothing is specific enough to guarantee it couldn't still be a blighted ovum. I run a specialty practice where we can US patients when the hCG is above 2000, so we routinely do 6 week ultrasounds. If you do not have access to US until 10 weeks that's not a cause for concern, but I'm afraid you'll just have to wait until then. Good luck and good wishes. ...Read more
I had an u/s yest, it says I'm in 6 weeks 2/3 days but doesn't show fetus. Doctor says it is blighted ovum, told me to see radiologist. What r my chances
Not sure: Did the doctor say you had a sac, but no fetal pole? You may want to consider having a blood HCG test now and in 48 hours to confirm that it is a blighted ovum. If your doctor performed an ultrasound, I'm not sure why he/she would send you to radiologist. Best would be to test your hormone and see if it's rising or falling. You need more information at this point. ...Read more
I'm 22 first pregnancy third cycle after starting to try, ended with blighted ovum. What are my chances of getting pregnant with a healthy baby?
Gestational sac and yolk sac at 5.4 weeks, but no fetal pole. What are the chances an embryo will show up? Worried ab blighted ovum.
Empty sac: 'Blighted ovum' is an older, less precise name for anembryonic pregnancy. It refers to a first trimester pregnancy in which a gestational sac/intrauterine pregnancy is seen but with no embryonic pole (baby.) it's also called an 'empty sac.'. ...Read more
Natural vs. D&C: 'Blighted ovum' is an older name for anembryonic pregnancy, in which a gestational sac/intrauterine pregnancy is seen but no embryonic pole. It's an abnormal pregnancy that is treated either by allowing natural miscarriage, or by d&c. ...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 more
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
