Why is blighted ovum always happening for pregnant women in this generation?
I'm 33 and I had two cases of blighted ovum. I've noticed that first timer pregnant women in their 30's nowadays do not complete their pregnancy cycle. Is there a connection between anembryonic demise and women's age, specifically when they reach 30 and it's their first to get pregnant?

Unfortunately older women are more likely to have a blighted ovum because the egg quality decreases with age. However, it is only really for women aged 35 years or older that the quality of eggs significantly decreases.
Some research shows that the chance of having a miscarriage is unfortunately slightly higher if it is your first pregnancy but not all studies back this up.
I hope this helps to answer your questions.
