Brief Answer: Possibility of blighted ovum or wrong dates Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Usually by completion of 5 weeks, gestational sac with embryo can be seen in transvaginal ultrasound. In transabdominal ultrasound by completion of 6 weeks, gestational sac with embryo can be seen. Presence of gestational sac only with out evidence of embryo indicates blighted ovum. So, possibly your report may indicating presence of blighted ovum. Sometimes because of wrong dates, sufficient growth may not be seen in ultrasound. For confirmation, better to wait for one more week and go for repeat ultrasound. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
