Brief Answer:
Do TVS scan after 1 week to confirm healthy pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,

Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments:

1) I have seen your attached report. It shows small (11 mm) sub-serosal fibroid, which DOESN'T affect fetal growth. It is mostly benign tumor.

2) As you had undergone treatment of unexplained infertility, then we can await another 1 week and check fetal viability. Late conception should be ruled out.

Normally, fetal pole and yolk sac should be visible through Trans Abdominal Scan (TAS) around 6-7 weeks and fetal heart beat is found around 7-8 weeks.

Rising pattern of beta-HCG is quite OK or Normal. I suggest you to undergo one Trans Vaginal Ultrasound scan (TVS) after 1 week to confirm viability. TVS scan gives more detailed and early picture than TAS.

3) There is some possibility of missed miscarriage or blighted ovum if repeat scan DOESN'T confirm healthy pregnancy. Review with report.

Hope, it helps for your information. Wish your good health and take care.
