Hello, and I hope I can help you today.

This ultrasound report, translated out of medical jargon, is as follows:

There is a pregnant uterus noted with an amniotic sac present, but no fetus visible yet or yolk sac. Human fetuses normally have a yolk, just like a chicken egg, usually from about 6 week until 9-10 week or so. This report estimates the sac to be about the size for a 5-6 week pregnancy. Also the uterus "decidual reaction" and "bulky" ovary are also normal during pregnancy.

The radiologist recommends repeating another ultrasound in a week or so to check for the development of a yolk sac and a fetus. The heartbeat is usually present by 7 weeks of pregnancy.

I hope I was able to explain the meaning of this report for you, and that the information I gave you was helpful and reassuring.

Best wishes,

Dr. Brown

So in essence, this is a normal ultrasound for a very early pregnancy.
