Pregnant. Scan showing transonic ring in the uterus. No peri sac bleeding and no fetal pole. Should I be concerned?
Thanks for the query
If gestational sac is visible and there is no cardiac activity at 9 weeks then it is most likely a missed abortion or mistaken dates.
See whether the ring or sac is regular or irregular.
Irregular sac usually indicates blighted ovum.
As you have taken pills for the past 6 months , it can be a mistaken date also.
Pills should be stopped three months before planing the conception.
It is not necessary to have bleeding inside or outside . In case of blighted ovum there can be no bleeding at all.
Do not be anxious till you get it repeated after 2 or 3 weeks.
Investigate for TORCH , Anticardiolipin antibody , Rh factor , blood sugar fasting , thyroid function tests etc which are needed in first trimester of pregnancy.
Meanwhile you take bed rest , folic acid , progesterone under your doctor's guidance and prescription.
Inj HCG (Human chorionic gonadotropin) can be given weekly for two weeks under your doctor's guidance and prescription.
I hope I have answered your query , any further query is most welcome
If you do not have any queries then accept my answer.
Thank you for writing back.
Blighted ovum means the ovum which stops growing. There can be several causes for this.
General factors like Hypothyroidism or infections like toxoplsma, rubella, herpes, cytomegalovirus etc.
It can be due to antiphospholipid antibodies or anticardiolipin antibodies in which ovum does not grow.
You please do not worry as these may not be the cause for your pregnancy and ovum. May be the cardiac activity can be seen after few days. Maintain your calm and take folic acid till then.
You can get your beta hCG (Human Chorionic gonadotropin) tests in the blood, if the values are increasing that means the pregnancy is normal. Ultrasound will confirm it.
