Ectopic Pregnancy Ultrasound Findings
No: In all normal pregnancies there is a cyst that develops in one ovary called the corpus luteum cyst. This cyst supports the early pregnancy and goes away on its own. Sometimes a "cyst" seen in or near the ovary does represent an ectopic pregnancy (most often in the fallopian tube". This is often accompanied by pain and bleeding. ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Maybe: The accuracy of a transabdominal pelvic ultrasound will depend on several factors: the level of the blood betaHCG tests, (not the LMP or estimated weeks of pregnancy) the skills and experience of the sonographer, (Certified Registered Technician) the quality and resolution power of the ultrasound machine, its number of MegaHertz, the location of the ectopic pregnancy (tubal,ovarian, cervical..) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Earlier the better: In the first trimester (< 14 wks) it's accurate within days. The later in pregnancy, the more inaccurate it is to date a pregnancy. Roughly, if an ultrasound differs by a week in the first trimester, dates are changed. 2 weeks for second trimester & 3 wks difference in the third trimester to change the due date compared to an lmp due date. Always keep the earliest us edc, it should never change. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Almost all test and imaging studies have false positive and false negative results. Early ovarian cancer is particularly difficult to detect as the normal ovary often has cystic changes and varies in size during the reproductive period. Having said that, transvaginal ultrasound is a useful and perhaps the best test for detecting ovarian cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If your dates are absolutely correct, and you have not had any irregular bleeding, and you have had regular periods in the past, then at 7 weeks gestation, an ultrasound would reveal pregnancy signs. So if the ultrasound was negative for any intrauterine or extrauterine pregnancy, usually, this is corroborated with quantitative beta hCG levels. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Ectopic pregnancy history.I'm 4-5 weeks pregnant but abdominal ultrasound did not see anything in uterus.To repeat scan in 14days.Is this normal?
Can this be an ectopic pregnancy: missed period (8 days in), dull pain in left lower abdomino, negative pregnancy test, history of ectopic pregnancy?

In that case, a follow up ultrasound is usually done in 7-10 days. ...Read more

Done 3 urine tests. positive. about 4 weeks pregnant. Vaginal ultrasound scan shows embryo but with no yolk sac. Endo thickness: 19.3mm. Worried?
Give it time: Our technology to detect pregnancies is amazing but sometimes we see structures well before they get formed. Give it time for the sac to form structures; you can repeat the US in 1-2 weeks to assess growth. This can be correlated with hormone level checks as well to ensure appropriate rise Best Wishes Dr M ...Read more
6 weeks pregnant (conception date). transabdominal ultrasound doesn't show anything. possible etopic? no s/s of ectopic.
Different ultrasound: at 6 week gestation, your developing baby would be no larger than a pencil eraser and could easily be missed on a transabdominal ultrasound which depends on the skill of the of the ultrasonographer.

Waiting and repeating the transabdominal may be a good option as well, and your obstetrician should be able to help guide the choice. ...Read more
