If you're pregnant or planning to get pregnant, there are many things you can do to give your baby a healthy start: Regular prenatal visits along with laboratory testing, ultrasounds, prenatal vitamins and immunizations (like the flu shot and whopping cough booster). Now's the time to eat healthy, stay hydrated, and ...Read more
Diagnose w/ectopic pregnancy at 6 weeks.levels @ 6,000 hcg. Why cant an ultrasound show an abnormality/sac in Fallopian tube at this stage?
-It'sWhat'sNotThere-: Because an ectopic can occur in lots of places other than just the fallopian tube. And the number of weeks and HCG levels, while helpful in general,don't always ad-up as hoped or expected. And because ultrasound may not be real sensitive at six weeks, and requires skill. I'm impressed that an ectopic is still in consideration. Most important is what's not seen at this point: anything in the uterus ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Re transfer 2 embryo during IVF and I am 6 week prgnt but in u/s re see one gestational sacs and no ectopic.Do body reabsorb embryo or anything risky?
This is ok: This is actually a pretty common thing that happens. This is why often re will transfer 2 embryos. Yes the body does resorb one and there is zero risk to the remaining healthy pregnancy. I hope it all goes well forward with one nice embryo and baby. Good luck! ...Read more
Hcg 20000 mar 5, hCG 27500 mar 11, vaginal us found only small gestation sac at eight week in uterus. Doc suspicious for ectopic?
Assuming the HCG..: ..Levels are accurate, your do not have a viable pregnancy.. The sono confirms this. I would do an endometrial biopsy to see if your pregnancy is intrauterine, and consider Methotrexate therapy as treatment for an ectopic if present. I would expect some pain and bleeding if you have an ectopic. ...Read more
I am 29 & this my 2nd pregnancy. The first one was ectopic. The sonographic report says anteverted uterus bulky. Gestational age 4.5 weeks. Worry?
Diagnosing ectopic: That ultrasound report is not very helpful. It's usually impossible to see a gestational sac at 4.5 weeks. Making the diagnosis of ectopic may require serial blood tests to watch the HCG hormone levels rise, and repeat ultrasounds. As a guideline, when your HCG level reaches about 1200, you should be able to see a tiny gestational sac in the uterus. Good luck! ...Read more
Had ectopic:jan. Pregnant 7wk as per lmp. Had u/s had gestational sac measuring 5.3wk. Hcg4000. Dr said day may b off or ectopic. Is ectopic possible?
Yes but rare: It is possible to have an ectopic pregnancy at the same time as a pregnancy in the uterus, whether the pregnancy in the uterus is healthy or not. This is called a heterotopic pregnancy, and is rare (about 1 in 4000 pregnancies) but is more common with fertility treatment where you release more than one egg. Symptoms may be pain or abnormal bleeding - talk to your doctor asap if experiencing pain. ...Read more
Lmp 12/1/13. On 1/8 had ultrasound and saw no gestational sac hCG was at 2600, 1/10 hgc 5700. Dr ruled out ectopic pg. But why wasnt sac visable?
If a Gestational sac is in the uterus is it possible to be an ectopic pregnancy? Or is a tubal pregnancy ruled out.
Unlikely but possibl: Heterotopic pregnancies (one "inside" one "outside") are uncommon but can happen. They are more common with assisted reproduction vs. natural, but can happen either way. The risk is not statistically higher than 1 in 100 and is usually much lower. Keep an eye on things but it's not likely for ectopic. Good wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
