Is that a cyst or miyom? And why isn’t the fetus visible? Did I have a miscarriage? Thanks doctor if you are willing to answer
Hello Dessy Muliasari,
Examination to diagnose a pregnancy can use a test pack (detecting an increase in the hormone HCG in the urine), examination of HCG hormone levels in the blood, and ultrasound examination. Transvaginal ultrasound (a device inserted into the vagina) can more easily detect a pregnancy at an early gestational age <6 weeks and its accuracy is better than an abdominal ultrasound (a tool placed on the abdomen).
Based on the first day of your last menstrual period (HPHT), 24 November 2019, today the womb should be around 7 weeks old. At 7 weeks gestation, the expected NORMAL results on USG examination are:
Visible gestation sac (pregnancy) in the uterus Visible fetus in gestational sac, can be measured the distance from the head to the buttocks (crown rump length) for the estimated age of the fetus Placenta in the uterine fundus The clear amniotic fluid When at 7 weeks the fetus does not appear at Your case is likely:
Blighted ovum / anembrionic pregnancy. Fertilization does not develop into a fetus, only the gestational sac continues to enlarge. Generally, a blighted ovum pregnancy will experience a miscarriage (exiting before 20 weeks gestation). After a complete miscarriage, generally the results of the test pack will turn negative after 2 weeks. The HPHT calculation is incorrect because the menstrual cycle is irregular (actually the fetus is still <7 weeks). The mass on an ultrasound examination can be located in the uterus, in the tissues around the uterus, or in the ovaries. Transvaginal ultrasound or abdominal ultrasound both can help to detect the presence or absence of an abnormal mass (which should not be present in normal conditions) associated with the reproductive organs. Generally abdominal ultrasound has a wider field of examination to determine the location of the mass. From the location, echogenisity (black and white) mass picture, edge mass, mass size obtained from ultrasound can help doctors to distinguish diseases that might cause the mass. Cysts or myomas for now can not be distinguished, because both can provide an abnormal mass picture on ultrasound examination. Please re-examine according to the time determined by the doctor.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
