Our expert says:
The occurrences of blighted ovum pregnancies are fairly common in in-vitro fertilization patients and also fairly regularly in natural conceptions. However, more than 2 such situations occur then investigations are necessary to rule out the possibility of an underlying genetic factor. There are also several blood related conditions, which may account for recurrent blighted ovum pregnancies and these may also need investigation. A single blighted ovum pregnancy is not necessarily a cause for major concern.
