Had periods after IUI, must go for 2nd IUI. Internal ultrasound shows sac with yolk, no placenta. What does it mean ?

I did an IUI on January 16th. I did a blood test on february 1st which came out negative. I started my menstrual cycle February 3rd. Today i had a doctor s visit in order to start the procedures for the 2nd IUI. When the doctor did an internal ultrasound , he was very surprised to see a sac with yolk in my womb. He said however he did not see a white circle around the sac which would indicate the placenta (i think thats what he said the white circle is). My question is, what does this all mean? Am i pregnant or not?Please help!

Thanks for the question.

Presence of gestational sac with yolk sac indicates you are pregnant.
Absence of white circle around gestational sac is choriodecidual reaction which develops later into placenta.

I recommend you to follow up with a ultrasound after 2 weeks. If heart rate is good, no need to worry about white circle.

Hope this helps,
