at afternoon. I want to ask. My cellphone was on 8 December 2017, on 10 January 2018 after the TP and the result was positive I immediately went to the doctor. When the ultrasound didn’t see anything, it was recommended to come back 2 weeks. On 27 January I had an ultrasound and the uterine sac was starting to show, the fetus was visible but it was still very small. On 9 February 2018 I had an ultrasound again, it turned out that the uterine sac was developing but the fetus was not visible and the doctor said the fetus was not developing and had to be aborted. Because I never had any spotting or pain in my stomach, I tried to check with another doctor but the results were the same as the fetus was not visible. I hesitate to take the doctor’s doctor for abortion pills because I still hope that my fetus can still be preserved. Is it possible that my fetus has not been seen and there is still hope of being saved because until now I have not had any swelling or pain in the abdomen?

Hi Jessy,

Blighted ovum (BO) or empty pregnancy is a pregnancy condition that is not accompanied by an embryo in the womb (anembryonic gestation). This condition is one of the most common causes of miscarriage in the first trimester.

Blighted ovum usually occurs due to abnormalities in the chromosomes of the developing fetus so that the body will naturally stop the pregnancy process (become undeveloped) which after some time will be accompanied by miscarriage. Blighted ovum can be completely asymptomatic until a miscarriage occurs.

If you have been diagnosed with a blighted ovum by your doctor, this is most likely the case. If you have any doubts about this, you can consult directly with the doctor who treats you or ask for the opinion of another doctor regarding this condition. If there are other possible causes for the condition (for example, delays in the development of pregnancy) then the doctor may recommend an ultrasound examination again within 1-2 weeks to evaluate the progress of pregnancy.
