Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

Sorry to know about the findings.Probably your wife is suffering from missed abortion.
Fetal pole should have been visualized by this time.
Missed abortion is indicated by non visualization of fetal pole,yolk sac,irregular gestational sac and poor trophoblastic reaction.
Ideally gestational sac should be regular in shape.

Your wife need follow up USG after 10 days.
Proper treatment depend upon follow up USG findings.So,you should wait till next USG.

You can plan next pregnancy after 2-3 months if she need abortion.There is no such fixed protocol.

Wish you for good news.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.

It can be assumed that abortion is advised after proper clinical examination.
USG findings were also not favourable,so you should follow your doctor's advise.

Missed abortion is a natural way to prevent the development of abnormal or malformed embryo.
Don't worry about the incident.It happens some time.

There is no restriction of time duration in planning next pregnancy.
You can plan after 2-3 months.
