Hello and welcome to HCM,
scan reveals that a gestation sac is present in the uterus
However, the fetus developing in the gestational sac
is not normal.
An ovum or fetus without cardiac activity at this stage is called blighted ovum
This implies that the conceptus is not viable, has some abnormalities (most often chromosomal) and will not develop further till term.
So, the next step is medical termination of the pregnancy
as it is not viable.
The procedure should be carried out as soon as possible as complications increase as the period of gestation increases.
Consult your gynecologist at the earliest.
Thanks and take care.
