Question: I'm 7 weeks pregnant and had an ultrasound measure at 12mm and it looks like it's empty. No fetal pole was detected. Is there still hope for me?

Brief Answer:
Depends on your previous cycles

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
I understand your health issues and anxiety about it.
I would like to know about your previous menstrual cycles.
In case you had normal cycles prior to this conception then this is not a good news and probably this is a missed abortion and rather an-embryonic pregnancy.
But in case you had irregular cycles then wait for another 10 days and get the ultrasound repeated.
All the best.
Regards

My cycles are 28 days but my last period was 3 days delay and started on February 1st. A very light period that lasted 3 days. I don't know if that kind of messed up or delay ovulation and implantation.

Brief Answer:
An embryonic pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
No dear that is not at all an issue then.
I'm so sad to say that it seems like this pregnancy is not going to grow any further at all.
So in my opinion you should opt for medical methods of evacuation of this pregnancy.

Would you recommend another ultrasound to make sure it was just a bad scan?

Brief Answer:
Can get a repeat scan

Detailed Answer:
Very less likely but in case you are not very anxious and depressed then waiting for another week and then a repeat scan will do no harm.
So you can very well wait and then get a repeat scan.
Take care
