Why are some people more likely to develop blighted ovum than others?

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

No Worries: Having that occur does not put you at increased risk in the future. it is very common. And there is no reason you cannot conceive and carry. Obviously it would be more concerning if it happened again. There is always a chance. Ironically, at a young age, it is a little more common ...Read more

Probably not: If you and your partner are healthy and your blood betaHCG levels are rising normally, your chances of having a normal intrauterine pregnancy are probably much greater than your risks of having a pregnancy loss. Once your betaHCG has gone over 1500 to 2000 mIU/ml,pelvic sonograms/early pregnancy ultrasounds can help confirm the location and viability of your pregnancy and provide you reassurance ...Read more

22 y/o got pregn 8 months after marriage..blighted ovum at 6 weeks is it more likely to be a bad egg then a weak sperm?

Depends: Could be either. A blighted ovum is fertilized egg that is not developing properly. It is not concerning unless happens 3-5 times. If this is your first pregnancy, don't worry too much. Stress can effect your body. Focus on being healthy, eating well, resting, folic acid and give your body 3 months to recover. ...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

Gestation sac 12mm x 5mm x 12mm is this likely a blighted ovum no yolk sac present docters estimate 7 weeks by lmp my dates 5 weeks 4 days hcg increas?

Must know HCG level: The correlation between the sonographic findings of a 12 mm mean gestational sac is much better with your blood betaHCG levels than with your estimated gestational age of 7 wks by LMP. If your betaHCG is rising appropriately and you are feeling fine, another well timed sonogram may provide you and your doctor some reassurance or a better sense of direction. ...Read more

Karyotype.: Getting your karyotype and your sexual partner's karyotype is a good idea if you have had two consecutive blighted ova. This will look for any balanced translocations or other chromosomal problems that may predispose you to this unusual pregnancy failure. Please take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily, consult an ob/gyn physician and a genetic counselor - and best of luck! ...Read more
