Thanks for the query.

Usually by 7 weeks of gestational age fetal pole and the cardiac activity can also be observed.
So the possible causes in your case are:
Wrong dates.
Fetal development might have got stopped.
So you better wait for one more week, in case of wrong dates by that time cardiac activity can be seen.
If not you should think about the termination.

Take care.
