Hello there.

Thanks for writing.
Ultrasound can depict pregnancy only after 5 weeks.

You say your wife's urine test was faintly positive which means it is a bit early for her test and ultrasound to detect pregnancy.

Do not go for any abortion procedure without an ultrasound. This is because before any abortion whether surgical or medical (with drugs) , an ultrasound is a must to know the SITE and SIZE of pregnancy.

When pregnancy is outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy), no abortion process helps and management is different.
Besides at times the pregnancy is not visible in uterus on ultrasound because of this condition.

You get your repeat ultrasound done after a week if your wife is around 6 weeks by then.
Do not take any abortion without supervision of a doctor.

Weeks of pregnancy are calculated by counting the days from her last menses starting date and then converted into weeks.

I hope I have answered your query.

Take care.

I have been heavily constipated since the day before yesterday and for the past week or so i have been encountering heavy white gooey discharge from my vagina. I suffered a miscarriage last month in August and have since had my period. What do you think this could be? I have been having unprotected sex with my husband.

Hi I had a missed miscarriage. At 12 weeks, fetus only showed as 6 weeks and with no heartbeat. My Bhcg levels were also dropping. Doctor prescribed 800mg of misoprosotol and I m going to find out this week, if it was successful in clearing everything. How long does the misoprostol stay in the system and when is it safe to try again? thanks
