Andie_WebMD_Staff posted:
WebMD has posted brand new content based the questions we've had on our pregnancy board about blighted ovum .

A few weeks ago, I couldn't find any content when a question was asked about a blighted ovum. So, I sent in a request to our editorial staff for something to be added. They listened and we have some new content for you.

"A blighted ovum occurs when a fertilized egg implants in the uterus but doesn't develop into an embryo. It is also referred to as an anembryonic pregnancy and is a leading cause of early pregnancy failure or miscarriage ."


For more information on causes, symptoms and treatment of blighted ovum, be sure to check out the full article .
