A missed miscarriage, also called a silent miscarriage, can happen in any pregnancy.
After conception, a fertilised egg (ovum) implants in your uterus (womb).
Sadly, it's then that something goes wrong, and the pregnancy doesn't continue.
It may be that an embryo didn't develop at all and the pregnancy sac is empty, which is called a blighted ovum.
This is a missed miscarriage, also called a silent miscarriage.
Often times, the mother may continue to have pregnancy-like symptoms and have experienced no bleeding, cramping, or other signs of concern.
The sequence of events, leading up to the resulting ‘missed’ loss, can result in pain that is unique.
With a missed miscarriage, it is often a complete emotional derailment and may result in feelings that one’s body has betrayed the mind.
This is called a blighted ovum (anembryonic pregnancy).
Or it may be that an embryo started to grow, but then stopped growing.
