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.
