Successful Pregnancy After Blighted Ovum
I had a d&c for a blighted ovum 2 .5 weeks ago. Negative pregnancy test yesterday so hCG is gone. Now ovulation symp, can I conceive so soon after?
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with blighted ovum, @7 weeks, 2days. After d & c, how many cycles should we wait again before trying?Affects future pregnancies?
Wait 1 normal period: Sorry to hear of your loss. After a D&C your pregnancy hormone (HCG) will fall down to zero in a few weeks, with some bleeding at that time. Wait 1 more cycle after this before trying again - after your next 'normal period'. There may be a higher chance of another miscarriage in the 1st month, so use condoms. 1 miscarriage is common, if you have 2 or more see a rei specialist to get checked out. ...Read more
Possibly, tho: That would be a long while. Hcg would be the only 'pregnancy hormone' you might still detect. ...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 Blighted Ovum is an out-of-date term for which is now called an Anembyronic pregnancy.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
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 (alprazolam) before realizing I was pregnant)?

Hello. : Hello. I am sorry to hear about your situation. If your doctor did an serum HCG and the level was far to too low for a fetus of this age, that would be suggestive that the ovum did not live. I think it would bother me if a physician did not confirm the ultrasound finding. I recommend that you talk to your physician and explain your concerns. ...Read more
Is a yolk sac a good sign for a viable pregnancy? Could we see a yolk sac when its a blighted ovum?
Usually good: A yolk sac is an early sign that usually is a good predictor. However, just like anything in medicine, nothing is 100% so a follow-up ultrasound in about a week should be done as you should be able to see a fetal pole and a heartbeat around 6 and a half weeks. ...Read more
My 5th pregnancy was a blighted ovum. (my first miscarriage). I am pregnant again is it likely I will have a blighted ovum again?
Miscarriage: Every pregnancy has about a 25% chance of miscarriage, which may increase slightly with age. The fact that you've had other pregnancies is encouraging, but each pregnancy carries that risk. There is nothing you could've done to cause it, nor to prevent it. I am sorry for your loss and wish you good luck with this one. ...Read more
I recently had a blighted ovum. I'm now pregnant again and going in for a 7 week ultrasound. Will they be able to tell if this pregnancy is viable?
Assuming: that the transvaginal dating confirms 7 weeks, a heartbeat should be detected in a normal pregnancy. If it is 6 weeks, a heartbeat may or may not be detected, and if it is 5 weeks or less, probably won't be detected even in a normal pregnancy. This is also assuming that the gestation is otherwise normal in appearance. ...Read more
Blighted ovum or too early to tell just an embryo 6 weeks 2 days or 5 weeks 2 days with still developing pregnancy symptoms help.... They scared us
What will be will be: Let nature do what it does, and not worry at all until later in the pregnancy. That is because only a portion of conceptions become successful pregnancies. Nature weeds out genetic mutations and other abnormal embryos, in trying to preserve the human species. It has worked fairly well thus far, bringing us here from even before our caveman days. Be hopeful, but don't worry. What will be will be. ...Read more
4 weeks preg, what are some signs of a healthy pregnancy and an actual embryo is growing rather than a blighted ovum? Preg tests are getting darker.
Impossible to tell: The symptoms of early pregnancy, nausea, frequent urination, tiredness are largely related to the hormones produced by the placenta rather than the fetus. Even in the cases of unsuccessful pregnancies such as blighted ova, it may impossible this early to tell the two apart. Your doc will need to follow you with ultrasounds and likely bloodwork to tell. ...Read more
