Hello, Thank you for the question.
Ultrasound (USG) is an examination using high-frequency sound waves that is used to assess the condition of structures and organs in the body. Ultrasound also has an important role in assessing the progress of pregnancy. At 6 weeks of gestation, an ultrasound will find the pregnancy sac containing the embryo (future fetus). The doctor will usually take measurements of the pregnancy valve or other structure to estimate the gestational age. In early pregnancy, gestational age is usually based on the first day of the last menstrual period (HPHT) which is then confirmed by ultrasound. If the doctor finds the size of the gestational sac that does not match the gestational age, then there are two possibilities, you may remember the wrong HPHT or your pregnancy is not developing properly. Because you are bleeding from the vagina in a large amount, the doctor is concerned that the ongoing miscarriage process (even though the cervix has not opened) will cause the pregnancy to not develop. However, because the cervix has not opened yet, your doctor may still think that the pregnancy is still viable. To be sure, the doctor recommends a repeat ultrasound examination 1 week later because within 1 week the gestational sac should have increased in size (according to increasing gestational age). If on a repeat ultrasound examination, the size of the gestational sac is still not as expected, it can be ascertained that the pregnancy has not developed, and a curettage procedure will be performed.
Please discuss directly with your gynecologist. Don't hesitate to ask your doctor if you have any other questions. In the meantime, feel free to get enough rest and avoid strenuous physical activity.
