Thanks for writing to us.

The condition most probably resembles threatened abortion.

If there is no cardiac activity at 7 weeks it is more likely to be a case of missed abortion.

Repeat the scan after 15 days and if no cardiac activity is found then your doctor will abort it.

If bleeding is more severe within 15 days then you have to go immediately for an ultrasound.

Your gynecologist has given you progesterone and antibiotics as well as haemostatic drugs which are fine.

She has called you within 3-5 days so it is better to consult her and whatever is required you have to do that.

Investigate for the cause like Rh factor, Blood sugar fasting, Thyroid function tests, TORCH, ACA antibodies etc under your doctor's guidance.
Any further query is most welcome.

Best wishes
Take care
