Infertility

Blighted ovum pregnancy

06/11/2008

Question:

i have had to blighted ovum miscarriages. everything i read says it doesnt happen twice in a row but it did. what should be my next step?

Answer:

It is unlikely that this would be expected to occur again.  It is recommended that patients with a clinical loss wait 2-3 months before trying again to attempt to reduce the chances of a repeat pregnancy loss.  Patients who have had 2 or more losses should have an evaluation by their physician to rule out any treatable causes.
