MSD is too small to ascertain viability on the initial ultrasound, a follow up scan in 10-14 days should differentiate early pregnancy from a failed pregnancy . You can confirm by getting colour doppler done to know heart beat.
Take adequate rest. If its very early pregnancy, it will continue and u will find an embryo within Gestational sac in follow up scan. Be positive.
Good luck

Thanks for your query.
At a gestational sac of more than 20 mm, a foetal pole should be clearly visible.
At five weeks of pregnancy, yolk sac is also seen.
THe spotting with pain is also not normal.
Fertigyn is correctly prescribed for pregnancy support.
YOu should take rest, avoid stress/exertion/intercourse, and go for regular follow up as advised.
Chances are you might abort this pregnancy, or in certain cases, if conception is delayed, it might still grow on normally.
By 6 - 7 weeks of gestational sac size ( approx 20 mm ), if there is no yolk sac/fetal pole/cardiac activity, then pregnancy is definitely non viable.
take care and all the best.
