Blighted ovum causes and symptoms

Blighted ovum, When a fertilized egg implants in the uterus but does not develop into an embryo, it is called a blighted ovum. It’s also known as an anembryonic pregnancy, and it’s a common cause of miscarriage or early pregnancy failure. It usually happens so early that you don’t even realize you’re pregnant. In the first trimester of pregnancy, one out of every two miscarriages is caused by a blighted ovum. A blighted ovum occurs when a pregnancy stops spontaneously within the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Blighted ovum symptoms

Blighted ovum

The fertilized egg connects to the uterine wall when a woman gets pregnant. 

An embryo should be present at around five to six weeks of pregnancy. 

The gestational sac, which is where the fetus grows, is roughly 18 millimeters wide at this point. 

The pregnancy sac forms and expands in a blighted ovum, but the embryo does not develop. 

An anembryonic pregnancy is the term for an ovum.

What Causes It?

Problems with genomes, the structures that carry genes, are a common cause of miscarriages caused by a blighted ovum. 

This could be the result of a low-quality sperm or egg. It could also happen as a result of aberrant cell division. 

Regardless, your body recognizes the anomaly and terminates the pregnancy.

It’s critical to remember that you had nothing to do with the miscarriage and could very definitely not have prevented it. 

A blighted ovum occurs just once in most women’s lives.

Blighted Ovum Symptoms

You may have noticed indicators of pregnancy if you had an ovum. 

You may have had a positive pregnancy test or missing menstruation, for example.

Then you can have symptoms of a miscarriage, such as:

Cramps in the abdomen

Spotting or bleeding in the vaginal area

A period that is longer and more intense than usual.

You may be having a miscarriage if you’re experiencing any of these signs or symptoms. 

However, not all first-trimester bleeding leads to miscarriage. 

If you notice any of these symptoms, make an appointment with your doctor straight once.

Blighted Ovum Diagnosis

You’re not alone in thinking you had a normal pregnancy; 

Many women with a blighted ovum believe they did since their levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) may rise. 

After implantation, the placenta generates this hormone. 

Because the placenta can grow for a short time even when there is no embryo present, hCG might continue to rise with a blighted ovum.

To establish that the pregnancy sac is empty, an ultrasound test is usually required to identify an ovum.

What Happens When You Have a Miscarriage?

If you’ve been told you have a blighted ovum, talk to your doctor about what to do next. 

Dilation and curettage affect some women (D and C). 

The cervix is dilated and the contents of the uterus are removed during this surgical operation. 

Because a D and C eliminates any residual tissue immediately, it may aid in mental and physical closure. 

If you want a pathologist to study samples to confirm the cause of the miscarriage, it may be useful.
