What are the symptoms of a blighted ovum?

A blighted ovum can occur so early in pregnancy that you never knew you were pregnant. In other cases, you may experience signs of pregnancy such as a missed menstrual period or a positive pregnancy test. You can have symptoms of early pregnancy, such as breast tenderness and morning sickness.

Other times your symptoms will resemble those of a miscarriage:

  • Vaginal bleedingSpotting (light bleeding), bleeding or passing light gray tissue or blood clots.
  • Cramping: Mild to moderate cramping in your pelvic and abdominal region.

The only way to confirm a blighted ovum is through an ultrasound. It will show a gestational sac that is missing an embryo inside.
