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

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 Blighted Ovum is an out-of-date term for which is now called an Anembyronic pregnancy.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
