No: If ultrasound at gyn office showed non viable pregnancy in uterus AND no evidence of pregnancy in EITHER tube, then agree with your GYN. If assessment of tubes was not done, then cannot guarantee there is not an ectopic pregnancy as well. Rare but can occur. So discuss with your gyn doctor to be sure both tubes were checked as well as the uterus with the ultrasound. Hope this is helpful. Dr R
