Doctor said unborn baby died because of no ovulation. Is that possible?

Hi i have a question , my cousin was 9 months pregnant like last week and she went to a regular check up appointment by herself , when she went her doctor told her that the baby died because she was not ovulated ( which does not make sense) then they vacumed the baby out then an hour later sent her home alone , is that possible ? I think she was never pregnant , she also does not talk to anyone

Thanks for writing to us.
At 9 months pregnancy, evacuation is not done. Labour pains have to be induced to deliver the baby. The evacuation may be done at 9 weeks due to a missed abortion or a blighted ovum. Ovulation has taken place if there is a pregnancy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

The whole thing sounds incredible.
If your cousin was 9 months pregnant, I presume she would have had check ups with doctors and a baby would have been felt or seen by ultrasound.
Anyway, a baby can not form until a woman ovulates, as the baby is formed by the fusion of the egg with the sperm.
There is a condition called a molar pregnancy in which there are tiny grape like structures in the womb and a baby does not form. That is treated by evacuation of the womb. If your cousin had that condition, she may need follow up to make sure all is well by doing blood test and if need be, scans.
However, your cousin has a right to privacy, which we should all respect.
