A 22-year-old female asked:
Ultrasound at 6weeks 2days pregnant shows gestational sac, yolk sac, fetal pole n heartbeat (133bpm).
what are the chances of miscarriage after this?

Risk is decreased: The fact the fetal pole has a heartbeat is very good and encouraging. However, the risk of miscarriage is still present until 12-13 weeks. That is why most celebrities do not release statements about pregnancy, due to the fact that miscarriage can happen.
After this time, with a normal fetal heartbeat and placenta, the risk of miscarriage drastically decreases.
