Hi,
You have not mentioned about the how many weeks of pregnancy you are having,without duration of pregnancy I can not say any thing.And it is not clear that what do you want to know about.
Apparently these are the findings of early pregnancy.

Hi Sonu,

What was the date of your last menstrual period? Did you have an abdominal USG (sonography) or a vaginal USG? The interpretation of your USG report depends upon how many weeks pregnant you are.

Generally fetal cardiac activity can be detected on a vaginal ultrasound scan at around
6 weeks of pregnancy.

Hi Sonu,

Fetal cardiac activity can be detected on ultrasound at around 6 weeks of pregnancy.

If no fetal cardiac activity is detected on ultrasound at 15 weeks of pregnancy, I would advise you to consult your gynecologist as soon as possible. He/she may want to repeat an ultrasound to confirm the findings of the first scan.

PELVIC ULTRASOUND: I had a biopsy last Thursday how long do you have to edit before you resume intercourse? What does of this means? HISTORY48 years female : Postmenopausal bleeding Comparison: 4-28-14 pelvic ultrasound Transabdominal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals a retroflexed uterus measuring 11.0 x 5.2 x 4.6 cm. Transvaginal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals several nabothian cysts in the cervix. The endometrial stripe is heterogeneous and exhibits a maximum thickness of 11 mm which is abnormally thickened for a postmenopausal female not on hormone replacement therapy. The uterine myometrium is diffusely heterogeneous, raising the possibility of adenomyosis. Multiple subcentimeter cystic spaces are noted in the endometrium. Neoplasia cannot be excluded. A small amount of free fluid is visible in the pelvis. A posterior, intramural fibroid measures 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm. The right ovary measures 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.4 cm. A hypoechoic lesion in the right adnexa, measuring 2.2 x 2.0 x 1.0 cm is most suggestive of a paraovarian cyst. The left ovary measures 4.4 x 2.1 x 1.9 cm and contains a 0.8 x 0.7 x 0.7 hypoechoic lesion with an echogenic rim; this lesion is not significantly changed from the prior exam. IMPRESSION: 1. Thickened endometrial stripe containing numerous subcentimeter cystic spaces; neoplasia cannot be excluded. Further evaluation with endometrial biopsy or sonohysterography should be considered. 2. Hypoechoic lesion previously noted in the right ovary is not evident on the current exam. 2. Subcentimeter, hypoechoic lesion in the left ovary which exhibits an echogenic rim is not significantly changed from 4-28-14. A similar lesion was noted on a 10-30-13 pelvic ultrasound,
