Hello Dr. XXXXXXX Bose
Thanks for writing to us.
You are around 5 wks 4 days pregnant right now.
A bulky ovary does not necessarily mean ectopic pregnancy, specially on PV examination.
However by this time, on transvaginal pelvic ultrasound, distinct intra uterine gestational sac should be seen.
If that is not present, and the ovary is bulky, suspicion of ectopic pregnancy is raised.
A blood B HCG level would quickly tell you the difference.
I would request you to upload the ultrasound report if possible.
Also ensure that the ultrasound was vaginally done, as abdominal ultrasound cannot clearly define the details.
Please get back with the ultrasound scan, so I can guide you better.
All the best.
Take care.
