Empty uterus: preg ?: Pregnancy will definitely increase the production of HCG, but an "empty uterus" on ultrasound at this point in pregnancy could indicate that the pregnancy may be outside the uterus (ectopic), which needs immediate attention. See your OB provider for an exam and further testing.
