I was told that I have a blighted ovum but there was an embryo present 2 weeks prior. I have not had any bleeding or cramping. Should I get a second opinion? It was diagnosed at 7 weeks

Thanks for posting your query.
If an embryo was detected at an earlier scan then a blighted ovum is unlikely. At 7 weeks, fetal poles and cardiac activity with a well defined yolk sac should be detected.
You can have a second opinion and go for a repeat scan one week after your last scan to see any further growth in the fetus or the sac size.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
