Thanks for writing to us.
If the pregnancy test is still strongly positive then possibility of ectopic pregnancy must be ruled out after a trans vaginal scanning. On trans abdominal scan, gestational sac may be missed at very early pregnancy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
