blighted ovum
22 Replies
quo - December 3

what i've understood about blighted ovum is that the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine wall and yet no embryo develops.what are the causes of this?

 

PerryTim - December 3

Hi quo, it would still trace to chromosomal abnormality because the embryo stops to grow due to this defect.

 

quo - December 3

but is that the only cause for it?what test do we need to detect such instance?

 

PerryTim - December 3

it can be diagnosed through transvaginal ultrasound. A gestation sac may be detected but no embryo inside it.

 

quo - December 3

thanks perry.any other causes aside from chromosomal abnormalities?

 

quo - December 3

what are the things to do in order to prevent this state?

I am interested about this. What are the symptoms if we are encountering blighted ovum?

If this is so what will the procedure to use during the miscarriage, natural or with the d&c?

 

PerryTim - December 8

A lot of questions here... hehe... Well, I have no other idea of some causes aside from abnormal chromosomes. Possible symptom may be difficult to detect without using any medical equipments. You can choose to miscarry naturally or undergo a d&c.

Is hormonal imbalance be one of its cause?

 

PerryTim - December 14

I am not sure about hormonal imbalance maybe it has some contributing factor. But I don't think it is a direct cause if ever.

Is hormonal imbalance be one of its cause?

I don't think so because it more on the structural or physical development of the embryo and not on the issue of conceiving.

It is an empty gestational sac, some call it an accident of nature. It is generally a cause of an early pregnancy loss.

 

strawberry - December 16

so by the term "accident", does it mean it can be avoided or there are really causes that was done to reach such instance?

 

AileenMay - December 16

I think by accident, it means certain unexpected chromosomal abnormalities that caused such and eventually results to miscarriage.

THIS IS ONE CASE OF HAVING ABNORMAL CHROMOSOMES. THIS IS DIFFICULT BECAUSE IT IS TO DETECT WITHOUT HAVING TO UNDERGO MEDICAL PROCEDURES.

CORRECTION: "IT IS HARD TO DETECT"
