What is a Blighted Ovum?


When a fertilized egg attaches to the uterus, most of the time it results in a pregnancy.  However, sometimes the embryo doesn’t develop the way that it should. When this happens, it is called an anembryonic pregnancy or blighted ovum.  When an ultrasound is performed, doctors will see the presence of a sac, but cells will not have produced a viable embryo. 
 
It is believed that it is the body’s way of miscarrying naturally due to chromosomal abnormalities, and usually happens in the first trimester. Most of the time, a blighted ovum happens before women even know that they are pregnant. And because of this, they don’t even know that it has occurred.
