Brief Answer:
Wait for a week

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to healthcare magic.

I read your query and following is my reply:

1) This is very early pregnancy with gestational age between 6 to 7 weeks considering your cycle duration and ovulation dates.

2) Yolk scan should have been seen by now in gestational sac.

3) Since it has not been seen till now there is possibility of it being seen in next week exists only if ovulation or implantation has delayed.

4) Hence it is very early to decide by now. Hence please wait for a week and repeat ultrasound scan.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Brief Answer:
Yolk sac

Detailed Answer:

I understand your stress. But you have to wait for another week before you find answers to these questions.

Your gestational sac size seems to be normal. But yolk sac should be seen by next week.

meanwhile continue medicines and get scan done after one week.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
