Two Blighted Ovums In A Row
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?
Yes: Yes you can. But I would recommend waiting a month to try, . That allows turnover of the uterus so you are not at a higher risk of miscarriage due to the uterus not being ready. ...Read more
I was pragnant and in July I was told I had a blighted ovum and im prag now I went for ultra sound and the doc saw two sac but one is smaller than the?
Two days ago I do blighted ovum, but still now my lower abdomen pain & very little blood see. So it is sign of any problem?
I had my 1st u/s with my re yesterday. We saw no hb nor fetal pole. Small yoke sack visible measuring 6w2d. Progesterone 24, hCG 13, 000. I'm thinking blighted ovum? : (I have had two losses 1 twins.
Unclear question: First of all, I am sorry for your multiple fetal losses, however, there is not enough information to answer your question. Critical data such as lmp, manner of pregnancy (iui or ivf) are missing. Talk to your re about your concerns as he/she has all of that data at hand. ...Read more
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
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
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. ...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
? blightd from MVA?: If your question is whether an mva that didn't produce vaginal bleeding injured an ovum/embryo, the answer is unknown. The fetal bag of waters cushions trauma & if the abdominal impact wasn't intense, it likely did not. Many conceptions are shed before or after implantation when the egg is not healthy enough to develop. Exam of this material shows a lg % with chromosome defects. ...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
Age and egg supply: Most blighted ovum pregnancies are genetically abnormal. Miscarriages increase as women get older, but low egg supply (diminished ovarian reserve) at any age increases the odds of miscarriage or genetically abnormal pregnancy. Rarely a woman or man has a genetic rearrangement (translocation) causing abnormal eggs or sperm. See a fertility md after 2 miscarriages if conceiving easily, sooner if not. ...Read more
See a REI specialist: A woman who's had two or more miscarriages needs testing to look for a cause, by a rei specialist if trying to conceive or by an ob/gyn if pregnant now. Possible causes include autoimmune conditions like antiphospholipid antibodies, blood clotting disorders, low egg supply, problems in the uterus like fibroids or a uterine septum, hormonal problems, male or female genetic problems. Get checked out. ...Read more
Can you ovulate twice in one month, ie. Releasing eggs at two separate times, or can you just ovulate once but release two ovum at this time?
One time: You ovulate one time. Sometimes women will release two eggs at once. ...Read more
If sac messured 6w4d is that how far I am and is it normal to not see a baby. I was told I had blighted ovum since already had 3 US should I be scared
Hard to say: Without being there or seeing the scan. If you had a vaginal ultrasound it would be quite unusual to not see a fetal pole at 6w4d, but GS measurements aren't terribly good for dating - so you might actually be earlier. Check with your OB and good luck. ...Read more
