Results Of Fetal Ultrasound Have Not Been Seen At 6 Weeks Gestation?
Hi doctor, I said … I want to ask, my pregnancy has been 6 weeks … but the fetal pouch has not been seen yet, I have used ultrasound but the results are the same. This is the third pregnancy, the second pregnancy at that time had a miscarriage. When there was no problem with the first pregnancy, why didn’t I get pregnant the second and third? Please help, Doctor
Hello Kikiamelia, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
To find out the gestational age can be done in several ways, namely the calculation of HPHT (First Day of Last Menstruation), where the HPHT is considered as the first day of gestational age. In addition to the ultrasound examination can also determine the age of pregnancy and the presence or absence of pregnancy, this method will usually provide more accurate results.
The examination will be carried out by the obstetrician by conducting a physical examination and transvaginal USG to determine the gestational age more accurately. At 6 weeks gestation, usually the sac of pregnancy can begin to appear and the fetus will appear in the twigs of pregnancy like a small dot with a diameter of about 0.2 cm. And usually a tranvaginal ultrasound examination can also provide more accurate results. Where the gestational age 4-6 weeks can usually be seen pregnancy pouches
But keep in mind that the ultrasound examination is an operator dependent examination, where the expertise of the operator plays a role in determining the results of the examination. And to ensure that you return, you should consult with your obstetrician. Usually the doctor will recommend a repeat examination can be done 2-3 weeks later.
