How To Prevent Blighted Ovum
Nothing: A "blighted ovum" is a pregnancy that simply didn't develop. These are usually genetically abnormal pregnancies that just stop growing, and can happen on occasion in normal situations. However, if you and your wife have this happen twice in a row, then that's considered abnormal and you should consider seeing a board certified re for testing. Dr. Roseff www. Reproendo. Com.
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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Doubt it: Blighted ovum (or anembryonic pregnancy) is more related to a chromosomal or post-conception error. Nothing you can do to prevent or cause these. Smoking however, can increase infertility, miscarriage, growth restriction, and preterm delivery. No to mention the neonatal health problems including sids...So, if you're planning a family; quit, eat healthy, exercise, & update your exam.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: With a blighted ovum, a yolk sac is usually all you see in the gestational sac on ultrasound.
Miscarrige: It can take several weeks, but past 2-3 weeks you increase the chances for it becoming infected and you may want to consider a d&c.
A blighted ovum is: An early pregnancy loss anywhere from 4-10 weeks I have never heard of anyone having that remain in them for 23 weeks, once it is diagnosed it should be removed using meds or D&C and usually you woudl start bleeding within 3-4 weeks of the nonviable point.

Depends: You may start trying whenever you are ready to get pregnant again.
Slightly: Statistically people with PCOS are at a slightly higher risk for miscarriage because their ovulations are not as "typical" as non-PCOS pts. If you are taking meds for your PCOS and continue them through the first trimester it can sometimes reduce your risk of miscarriage.
