Only told to stop superfact injection after 6th weeks of my first day menses. my gynae verdict me with blighted ovum at 9 weeks of pregnancy (which is last week of march 2012).

Thanks for writing to us.
Superfact injection is not likely to cause the blighted ovum. The main cause of blighted ovum is a major chromosomal abberation not compatible with life. No fetus is seen inside the sac in such cases. You can re try using the injection for conception.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
