Hsv Type 1 And 2 (Definition)

A variety of infections caused by herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2. Type 1 infections are marked by the eruption of vesicles on lips or at the external nares; type 2 by such lesions on the genitalia. Both types often are dormant and reappear during febrile illnesses or even physiologic states such as menstruation. The viruses become latent and and may not ...Read more

I had a ultrasound done 2 days ago showing two gestational sacs but they was both empty, one measured at 5w5d other 5w2d is this normal!?

Probably: If these dates are consistent with your last period then it is just a little early to see a fetal pole and heart rate. In another week or two you should be seeing something if everything is normal. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my child brought home an ultrasound with 2 gestational sac diameter measurements does that mean it's twins?

Not necessarily.: The gestational sac should be measured in three different planes to determine mean sac diameter, so there may be multiple pictures of the same gestational sac with different measurements. ...Read more

Repeat ultrasound: I don't know why you have been having these radiologic tests; perhaps for pelvic pain? In any case, speak with your hcp and have a repeat ultrasound after 1-2 weeks. Repeat the HCG test too. If you were 4 wks pregnant on thursday's ultrasound, the ct scan would have been done near ovulation. ...Read more

Check with your doct: Check with the doctor before assuming that those were gestational sacks. Not really clear what your question is on here but congratulations if you are pregnant. Talk to your doctor about the results first before assuming that you can interpret the ultrasound. ...Read more

Ultrasound says my fetus is 6 weeks 2 days but my gestational sac is 7 weeks 2 days. Heartbeat is normal. Is everything ok?

Ultrasound says my fetus is 6 weeks 2 days but my gestational sac is 7 weeks 2 days. Heartbeat is normal. Is everything ok?

Most likely: The most accurate measurement of the fetus is the crown rump length. The gestational sac is like a fluid filled balloon, not a perfect sphere. So the measurement of the sac can vary quite a bit depending on what part was measured. If there is already a fetal heart beat, that is a great sign. Keep your follow up appointments with your OB doctor. ...Read more

Had ultrasound 6/2 that showed empty gestational sac and 6/9 that showed empty sac that had grown. Sac dated 7wk 1day 6/9.  Will I have a miscarriage?

Not normal: Unfortunately this is not normal. I assume this was a transvaginal US. Fetus should be easily visible at 7 weeks, and the yolk sac should have been seen on the prior ultrasound. Please speak with your doctor, and best of luck to you. ...Read more

Hemorrhage, lower then average hormones, fetus smaller then normal, gestational sac 2 weeks behind fetus. Chances of trisomy or other abnormalities?

Maybe,miscarriage is: More likely. Not knowing how many weeks pregnant you are, it's difficult to give you more specific information. Usually the above consistent with early pregnancy loss. It is best to follow closely with Gyn/OB. Also try to avoid air travel or long car rides, trips in remote areas until this is settled. Miscarriage is potentially serious and can result in significant blood loss, so call 911 4 help ...Read more

Is a beta of 1684 okay for a 4 week 2 day pregnancy saw gestational sac just on transvaginal ultrasound ?

Maybe.: It sounds within the normal range but their are charts to compare age and normal bHCG levels that I don't currently have reference to. If your doctor or US tech wasn't concerned then you shouldn't be either. If you are bleeding or concerned about miscarriage, see your doctor/provider immediately. ...Read more

Anteverted,bulky gravid uterus,single intrauterine gestational sac 2.7 cm gestational age 6 weeks 6 days no fetal pole is this OK?or a miscarriage?

Blighted ovum: A gestational sac without a fetal with a gestational age of almost 7 weeks is most likely a blighted ovum (non development of the fetus). Most likely with result is a miscarriage. If not you may need a D&C. Follow up with your gynecologist in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

Gestational sac measuring two weeks smaller than baby. Baby measuring normal for dates and hb is good. Why is the sac so small and is this a bad sign?

Small gest sac: Would not be too concerned about sac size. If CRL is appropriate and HB is good those are very good signs. Be patient. Too early yet to tell much. Hope this helps. Best of luck. And Congratulations! ...Read more

9 weeks pregnant and hb and baby are measuring at 9 weeks. Gestational sac is behind in size two weeks. Should I be worried about this?

No: I wouldn't be worried. If you have an appropriate for gestational age fetus with a heartbeat it's a GREAT sign! Congratulations! Please make sure you are taking your prenatal vitamins or at least 800mcg of Folic Acid daily. :-) ...Read more

Hello doctor I was five week three days pregnant. But my gestational sac was empty. Doctor has prescribed me usg after two weeks. But now I m having b?

5 wks plus/pregnant: At five plus weeks, it is not always possible to see a fetal heart on ultrasound. Another ultrasound in "2 wks." (if that is what "usg" means) is appropriate, but if you are having bleeding, it may be a miscarriage. Get a quantitative HCG (serum) from your gyn provider. This can give definite indication as to whether your pregnancy is still viable. ...Read more

I’ve just had an early scan 6w & have one gestational sac, three yolks and one heart beat. Does this mean that one embryo split into three and these are identical triplets? And can the two yolks catch up still? Next scan seems too far away

I’ve just had an early scan 6w & have one gestational sac, three yolks and one heart beat. Does this mean that one embryo split into three and these are identical triplets? And can the two yolks catch up still? Next scan seems too far away

Possibly: split into three, but from what you describe, only one heart beat, suggests only one will continue to grow. Next ultrasound will be helpful, and be sure to discuss your concerns with your doctor as well. ...Read more

Date Discrepancy?: Sounds like they were expecting to see an 8 week menstrual age pregnancy and they saw something earlier. They are trying to see if there has been appropriate growth and a visible fetal heart beat. They want to confirm that the pregnancy is healthy. Too bad your question was cut off. ...Read more

A gestational sac measuring 12.37mm is I how many weeks approximately? I thought I was 5 weeks 2 days.

A gestational sac measuring 12.37mm is I how many weeks approximately? I thought I was 5 weeks 2 days.

Patience is Key: It is best to calculate your pregnancy age by measuring the crown rump length which can be done in 2 more weeks after the embryo and heart beat are seen. Measuring Gestational sac is not that accurate for dating a pregnancy. So, please see your doctor in 2 weeks. Take Care. ...Read more

Gestational sac has consistently measured 1-2 wk behind baby. Baby growing normally according to dates with a good hb. Worrying? Space to grow?

GS size: GS size correlates very poorly with dates, so I would not worry much so long as the baby CRL continues good growth. Obviously it's not possible to say more online; just keep up with your regular visits, and keep good communication with your doctor. ...Read more

Levels: Ideally you would see the HCG levels double in 48 hours. If you had a blood Progesterone test those results would be helpful too about the prognosis of the pregnancy. Ultrasound with levels that high would likely have seen a fetal pole. ...Read more

Could gestational sac measure small due to dehydration? The baby is measuring normal with a normal hb but the sac is measuring almost 2 weeks behind.

Could gestational sac measure small due to dehydration? The baby is measuring normal with a normal hb but the sac is measuring almost 2 weeks behind.

No: Dehydration does not affect the size of the gestational sac because the fluid around the developing embryo does not come from your body systems. The size of the embryo is a more reliable measure of gestational age and thus should be used when possible. ...Read more

Is it good if the gestational sac was found?
