This site was set up by someone who suffered a blighted ovum in her first pregnancy. Being someone who does a lot of reading up and investigating about things like this, I decided to set up my own website to bring together all of the information that I had learned about ‘blighted ovum’ and the issues surrounding it.
If you have any worries or questions about your own situation then this website is by no means any substitute for medical advice and you should seek help from your doctor. It is purely here to help you to understand from someone who has experienced it, what you might go through.
A blighted ovum is essentially a condition of pregnancy which will inevitably lead to a miscarriage. It occurs in the first trimester but may not be discovered for some time. You can find out some of the following specific information about a blighted ovum on this website:
- What is a Blighted Ovum?
- Blighted Ovum Symptoms
- Blighted Ovum Miscarriage
- Blighted Ovum Causes
- Blighted Ovum Picture
- Pregnancy After a Blighted Ovum
I think it is also useful for other people to see stories of those who have had a blighted ovum. If you have also suffered in this way please feel free to leave details of your experience on the website. In this way we can all share our knowledge. I know that when I first discovered that I had a blighted ovum there were questions that I wanted to ask that could really only be answered by those who had been through the experience.
When you first get the diagnosis of a blighted ovum you wonder if there are other people who have suffered from the same thing – well, although you obviously wouldn’t wish it on anyone else, it can be good to know that there are a lot of people who have experienced this and you are not alone. People’s experiences differ in terms of when they find out and how the pregnancy ends but we are all sharing the same devastating realisation that our dreams have been shattered.
