Missed abortion is to be considered in female patients presenting with abatement of the pregnancy symptoms before 20 weeks of pregnancy. It is usually a condition in which an intrauterine pregnancy is present but does not have normal development. This could mean that it could be a blighted ovum, empty sac or foetal demise which occurs before 20 weeks of intrauterine life. Regular check up with the doctor will be able to diagnose the condition and an ultrasound along with physical examination will help in coming to the right diagnosis and also helps in differentiating it from other types of abortion such an incomplete abortion and inevitable abortion. This is clearly done on the basis of physical examination.
