Blighted Ovum Diagnosis, General

Possible Blighted Ovum

March 17, 2012


It seems that a lot of ladies are told by their doctors that they might have a ‘possible blighted ovum’. Sometimes it is hard for the doctor to see exactly what is going, particularly if it is early days. But if you go to the doctor after 7 weeks or so you should (or they should to be more accurate) be able to see the heartbeat. The problem is that many people are not sure of their exact conception dates so the doctor wants to be totally sure that it is a blighted ovum.

So when a doctor says it is a possible blighted ovum they really want to double check this. They may do another ultrasound a few days or a week or two later, or they may take hcg levels two days apart to see how they are increasing.

There are cases when someone is told that they have a possible blighted ovum and they go on to find the baby in a later ultrasound scan. But these cases are not the norm and as much as you feel like you are the only one suffering this ordeal, there are many other people that have experienced this too and you are not alone.

So if you are diagnosed with a possible blighted ovum then the only thing you can do is to wait for further testing and try and get as much support and find out as much as you can about the situation.
