What can be the cause of blighted ovum and how can it be treated to prevent a re-occurrence?
A poor quality sperm or egg is usually the cause of blighted ovum. When there are abnormal chromosomes in the sperm or egg, the body in an attempt to eliminate the abnormality tends to stop the development of the ovum into an embryo. Most often nothing can be done to prevent it than to live a more natural lifestyle and allow your body to readjust itself. The good news is that blighted ovum does not repeat itself in most women, it only happens once.
