Laparoscopic Appendicitis In Early Pregnancy?
Good morning, Doctor.
Hello Raga Alina,
If calculated based on your HPHT and assumes that your menstrual cycle belongs to the cycle of most women, which is 28 days, then your estimated gestational age is 4 weeks 3 days. At that gestational age, it is still difficult to see the gestational sac through transabdominal ultrasound (an ultrasound device attached to the abdomen), whereas with higher accuracy, transvaginal ultrasound can detect the presence of a gestational sac at 5 weeks of age.
A positive test pack result indicates the level of beta HCG hormone produced by the body at conception. Meanwhile, the importance of doing an ultrasound at the beginning of pregnancy is to determine whether the fertilization occurred in the uterus / intrauterine (normal) or vice versa outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy). So you should do the control back according to schedule. It doesn't matter if you want to check with another doctor because each patient has the right to ask for a second opinion from another doctor, but it would be better if you checked yourself out at the same hospital so that your medical history can be monitored on the same medical record.
so, I hope this answer helps
