User:yes doctor tht is mentioned in Ultra sound scan
User:scan was performed on dec 11th
Doctor:Let me brief you.
Doctor:The scan report calculates period of gestation based on the size and growth of the fetus.
Doctor:If your wife's last menstrual period was 4th september, as per calculations she is 15 week pregnant when the scan was performed.
Doctor:However since ultrasound scan revealed 10 weeks, it looks like the fetus growth isn't optimal.
Doctor:Both duphaston and hcg injections are given to help sustain and progress pregnancy.
Doctor:It is most likely used in this regards.
Doctor:Spotting again may be related.
Doctor:Please continue the treatment as mentioned and follow up with the gynecologist as per her instructions.
