Unfortunately not: If your dates are accurate then there is no such thing as a healthy pregnancy that can result if there is no heartbeat by this time. The blood test is simply confirming the inevitable. Sorry.

It may be normal.: The delay in reaching the normal milestones we expect to see on ultrasound in early pregnancy are simply the result of a delayed ovulation, so that you are earlier than your dates suggest. On other occasions, it may be that the pregnancy is not doing well. Only time can really tell, because bleeding in pregnancy has little predictive value. On occasion, a blood test can be helpful. Time will tell.

No: Although Methotrexate (mtx) is a type of chemotherapy, it does not deplete the egg supply the way other chemotherapeutic medication can. Mtx has been used for nonsurgical treatment of ectopic pregnancies for more than 20 years, and the data in this regard are very reassuring. The standard recommendation is to wait 3 months to conceive after treatment with mtx but otherwise there should be no issue.
