Explanation Of Ultrasound Results And Stated That The Fetal Heart Rate Is Not Visible?
, I want to ask: r n1. what could BO say but before the ultrasound results showed a fetus and a heartbeat? As additional information, I am HPHT 2 July 2018. When the ultrasound on the stomach the doctor said I was BO, at 2 mg before we both saw an embryo. Then I asked at that time for a transvaginal ultrasound and it turned out that GS 2.7 cm, Crl 0.48 cm, Ys 0.44 cm and the pulse was visible .. r n r n2. When the fetal heartbeat is seen, it beats several times and then stops and beats (we are not listening to the sound from the ultrasound machine and the beat graph and I also don’t understand this) if this is said to be a heart defect so that the fetus will not survive and if it survives it will experience heart defects should later be aborted at this young age? Is there any way to know the true condition of the fetus? Should it be 4D ultrasound? Or is there a way to preserve this fetus? R n r nThank you very much. I really hope that the amount from the doctor because right now I am very panicked .. Thank you
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Blighted ovum (BO) is a pregnancy that does not produce an embryo even though fertilization has occurred (meeting of a sperm with an egg). A common cause of this condition is a chromosomal abnormality in the developing fetus. In the early stages, women with BO will experience signs of pregnancy for some time. At one time, the sufferer will experience symptoms of a miscarriage. The best way to determine the condition of the fetus is by ultrasound examination (USG). The ultrasound will show an empty pregnancy sac. 4D USG will not give more accurate results because in early pregnancy the baby's body structure is not fully formed so that 4D USG does not have a significant role.
Ultrasound is an examination with ultrasound waves that are used to determine the structure of organs or tissues in the body. Changes in the sound of the heartbeat (alternating between stopping and beating) can be caused by a shift in the ultrasound probe (a device attached to the abdomen) when the test is performed or an error detecting the heart. It is too early for doctors to declare a heart defect at this gestational age. Furthermore, the presence of a heart defect is not only confirmed by the sound of an arbitrary heartbeat.
The results of the ultrasound examination really depend on the expertise of the operator (the doctor who did it); or in other words, the results of the examination between one doctor and another doctor are not necessarily the same. My advice, if you have any doubts, please consult with another obstetrician for a second opinion before determining the next treatment for your condition.
Hope this information helps you.
