No Menstruation 3 Months, When Ultrasound Has A Fetal Bag Age 5 Weeks?
Morning, at the end of April, my last menstruation had already been negative for several times, until mid-July I decided to check up with a specialist. when asked there were no signs of pregnancy, then the doctor gave me Primolut medicine to take for 5 days, and had to come back for a check up when the first menstrual day. But after I waited for 2 weeks I still did not menstruate, and I returned to check up to the doctor. Now when pushed back it turns out there is a 5-week-old fetal sac, but there is no visible fetus. What I want to ask is whether I might have been pregnant since taking the drug and have an effect on the drug? then how do I calculate the age of the fetus when my HPHT in April but 5 weeks of pregnancy?
Hello Ms. Devi! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on the information that Ms. Devi gave, it is possible that you were pregnant before the doctor gave Primolut, based on the doctor's information that your fetus was 5 weeks old. In the initial phase of pregnancy, which is less than 3 weeks, the fetal sac will not be detected from the Ultrasound examination (USG).
Primolut is a drug that contains the hormone progesterone. This medicine is usually given by doctors to improve irregular menstrual cycles. Based on research to date, there is not enough evidence that hormonal drugs containing progesterone will harm the fetus. So you don't need to worry too much about the effects of using Primolut in the early phases of your pregnancy.
Your gestational age cannot be determined based on the First Day of Last Menstruation (HPHT) because of your irregular menstrual cycle. The standard that you can use is the results of an ultrasound that states that your fetus is currently 5 weeks old. The results of an ultrasound examination by an obstetrician in the first trimester provide an accurate estimate in determining the gestational age. What you need to do now is take care of your health and that of the fetus by adopting a healthy lifestyle and following the obstetrician's guidance that you have visited. Do not hesitate to always consult a doctor if you have complaints or other problems.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps.
