Thanks for query.

It is difficult to see the gestational sac so early in ultrasound. Follow my advice that I have written below:

1) Get "serum beta hCG" blood test done. It is a sure method of confirming pregnancy.

2) This value of beta hCG double every 48 hours confirming the pregnancy even if sac no visualised in uterus.

3) Please ask gyecologist to look for ectopic pregnancy ( pregnancy outside uterus).

The above points will confirm everything remove your doubts.

I hope I answered your query. Please accept my answer if no more queries.

Wishing you good health.
