Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

The uterine cavity containing a sac of 4 mm with small fluid can be due to a very early pregnancy less than 5 weeks or due to a missed abortion. If your periods are overdue and there is mild spotting then missed abortion is more likely since fetal node is not visualized.

You can go for a repeat scan after 10 days to see any growth in the sac.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.
Regards,
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello,

Thanks for writing again.

The fluid area is likely to be near the sac and is not within the sac. It is suggestive of a uterine bleeding. Serum HCG levels will help in confirming the viability of the fetus.

Hope my answer is helpful.

Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Hi again,

In case of missed abortion sometimes the mild spotting does not change into a full bleeding until the cervix opens up and all the products of conception are expelled spontaneously. You can wait for few days and if the bleeding becomes heavier, go for a repeat scan.

Wish you good health.

Regards.
