Hello, well from the history you have given, gestational sac can be visible by transvaginal scan as early as 5 weeks, if you have regular cycles.....If you are planning to terminate your pregnancy, you can consult your doctor as early as possible, because in early weeks medical termination has success rate of nearly 90%...The more the delay the chances of surgical termination like evacuation increases....Hope i was helpful to you. ....
