what does a collapsed amniotic sac mean? in pregnancy

1 doctor answer
Dr. Gregory Lewis
43 years experience Urology
See answer : An empty amniotic sac usually indicative of a non-viable pregnancy or what is known as a "blighted ovum" which occurs when a fertilized egg implants into the uterine wall, but the fetus does not continue to develop past the sixth to eighth week of gestation. There is continued development of the placenta and amniotic sac which produces HCG (giving the positive pregnancy test).
