I had an emergency scan and only saw the sac no fetus what does this mean?

Gestational sac: If you had an ultrasound with only a gestational sac, it could be either a very early pregnancy or what is called a missed abortion. If you are only 4-6 weeks you may not see a fetus, but if you are further along like 10 weeks it may be a missed abortion. That term simply means a pregnancy where there is no fetus and just placenta tissue. ...Read more

Hi, I had a 3d scan today, am 7 weeks and 2 days. Sac size and crl are as expected but sac volume is 6.8ml, is that too low?

Hi, I had a 3d scan today, am 7 weeks and 2 days. Sac size and crl are as expected but sac volume is 6.8ml, is that too low?

Probably low normal: While this isn't my area of expertise I do have some experience using ultrasound. The measurements are highly dependent on the healthcare provider using the machine. (i.e. Operator dependent) it is so early in your pregnancy you are talking about very small volumes. If I were you I wouldn't fret and worry over every minor detail and number. I'm sure you're in excellent hands. Be well. ...Read more

I've heard that if you shine a strong light through your sac and see it on the other side then it is a hydrocele. Is this accurate?

Transillumination: Bright light shining through a scrotal swelling usually means that a hydrocele is present, however transillumination also occurs if there is a testicular tumor in addition to the hydrocele. Thus not a completely reliable sign and does not replace accuracy of scrotal ultrasound. ...Read more

Hi its been nearly 9 weeks since my LMP started with some pinkish disharge on and off went for scan there was a sac measuring 4-5 weeks but irregular?

Blighted ovum: This sounds like a blighted ovum or missed abortion (miscarriage).This sort of thing doesn't decrease the chance of having a normal baby in the future but it doesn't look good for this time. It is important for you to know that this usually happens because of something wrong with the embryo and not because of something you did or didn't do. Your doctor will probably repeat the ultrasound to confirm. ...Read more
