hi. About 3. 5 years ago, wife had a miscarriage, and a failed ivf 5 month ago. At the moment the HPT has come positive and beta hcg was 365.9, post 48 hours this was 414 and 5 hours post 414 reading the same was 433. The increase is not 60%, she did her USG last week itself within hours of the BHCG radiologist said neither intra/extra ueterine gestational sac is seen at the moment, and said this means this has been flushed out or too early. Given this background based on non visibility of extra uterine gestational sac , can one confirm there is no ectopic preganancy. LMP was 24.2.16 and BHC done on 8.4.16
Is there a chance of normal pregnancy? Can we based on this reading confirm that there is no ectopic pregnancy at this stage?

doctor1 MD

Brief Answer:
No ectopic. Repeat TVS and beta-hCG.

I need an opinion if my pregnancy will go okay or should i be worried I go to doctors tomorrow but i went to hospital just to get an ultrasound done so I said I had pelvic pain....I told tem my last period was 6-6-15 they told me I was 5weeks 3days.When they completed the ultrasound this is what the findings were...uterus is anteverted measuring. 9.2×4.6×6.1cm...there is an abnormal appearing intrauterine presumed gestational sac which shows some internal septations and irregular crenulated margins. Based on mean sac diameter, gestational age estimate 5weeks 3 days. No yok sac or embryo identified. Right and Left ovary normarl and moderate fluid in cul-de-sac....
Then it says impression:
Presumed intrauterine gestational sac without yok or embryo identified. If indeed a gestational sac it is abnormal in apperance,suspicious for missed abortion. Given lack of visual of embryo or yok sac follow up with serial hcg and ultrasound is recommended to EXCLUDE EARLY INTRAUTERINE PREGNANCY OR ECTOPIC PREGNANCY....are they saying exclude the possibility of me having a baby please answer with details....thank you
