  • If the body doesn't reabsorb it, they become cystic (fill will fluid) and eventually rupture. I had this happen many times and it can be very painful. A doctor will likely recommend birth control in order to regulate hormones. Good luck!

  • it would be a blighted ovum??? if it actually happened and the egg implanted. i'm sure it would be painful though.

  • Yes. Normally the body would just re-absorb it. It just breaks down and dies off if not fertilized.
