What is USG

Hi I went for a transvaginal scan but no sac could be detected. They even checked for ectopic pregnancy but nothing found. My last period was on 4th December. I have irregular periods. Is it not normal for the sac not to show? I am really worried

Brief Answer:
Sac is seen after 5 weeks.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
A sca is seen on transvaginal scan at 5-6 weeks. No need to worry. Repeat the scan after a week in case the pain persists. You can get your thyroid hormone levels evaluated and start with suitable medicines after consulting your gynecologist. Progesterone supplements are needed in case of threatened abortion.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Hi doctor, I am currently taking euthyroid 50 I will do the thyroid test on Monday. I will also be 5 weeks next week InshaaAllah, like you know that at 4 weeks we didn’t see anything as it was too small, doctors said we must go after 2-3 weeks for scan again. I have no bleeding or pain anymore. Would you think that when I go do the thyroid test I must get the HCG beta serum tested to see levels?

Brief Answer:
You can get HCG tested also.

Detailed Answer:
While testing for thyroid levels, you can get your serum beta HCG also tested. It will further confirm the pregnancy.
