Blighted ovum pregnancy
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?
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.
