Could The Ultrasound Be Wrong?
Good morning, I finally arrived on 29/01/2019, then I did a tespack on 25/3/20199. It turns out that the second line I still doubt is positive or not because of the two lines one of them is vague. Then on 27/32019 I did another pack and the results were the same, because I doubt my husband and I did the ultrasound to confirm it, and the results thank God positive. But from these results that make the block and fear is when doctors say the fetus is not developing. Because the results of ultrasound are just like a sac, and menurt it should have been 8 weeks of pregnancy, but the results of ultrasound showed only 6 weeks over 5 days. if it still does not develop, my question is whether my pregnancy is not normal, is it really the worst reality that I will experience? Please enlighten me … Thank you in advance
Good evening, thanks for the question
If at the beginning of the pregnancy ultrasound examination found an empty bag without a developing fetus in it, generally doctors will wait until the age of 8-9 weeks to confirm it. If during a predetermined period of time the fetus does not develop properly in the pregnancy sac and spontaneous abortion does not occur, the doctor may recommend evacuating the gestational sac with drugs that stimulate uterine contractions or by way of dilation and curettage. A fetus that has not developed since early pregnancy is likely due to a genetic disorder.
Whereas regarding the location of the pregnancy sac in the womb must be assessed from an ultrasound examination. Pregnancy outside the uterine organ or called an ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg is implanted and develops outside the uterine cavity. Normally a fertilized egg implants the uterine wall. Ectopic pregnancy most often occurs in the fallopian tubes, the channels that connect the ovaries to the uterus. Sometimes ectopic pregnancy can also occur in the ovaries, abdominal cavity, or lower uterus.
Because it does not develop at a normal anatomic location, this condition can be accompanied by complaints of severe acute abdominal pain accompanied by bleeding from the birth canal which generally occurs at the age of 6-10 weeks, so it needs immediate surgery.
If you are in doubt, you should do a second opinion with another obstetrician in order to get other medical advice options according to your current condition.
That's all, hope you can help
