HCG levels
Hi,

I had to have a dnc and was told that I had a blighted ovum. The results came back and my HCG levels were low. Can this cause a blighted ovum? Is this serious????? Will it affect my falling pregnant again and sustaining a pregnancy?

The HCG level was the result of the blighted ovum, not the cause. HCG is only present when you are pregnant so this has no effect on future pregnancies.
