Thanks for writing to us

If the gestational sac is irregular and there was no yolk sac and hCG levels are not double within 72 hrs means it is a case of missed abortion and you have to get it evacuated.

Find out the cause by getting investigations done like TORCH , APA ,ACA, blood sugar F , VDRL , ABO and Rh typing , thyroid profile etc

As you are having the history of PCOD so there can be chances of missed abortion due to hormonal imbalance

Best wishes

Take care
