Is It Possible For A Scan To Reveal Only One Baby When There Are Twins
Yes: In general an experienced sonographer can detect two sacs or two fetuses in the first trimester and beyond. Sometimes one twin will be missed if it is not developing normally (eg, stuck twin) or is in one corner (horn) of an abnormally shaped uterus or if the woman is very large. Those would be very rare exceptions at most centers today. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My granddaughter claims to be 5-1/2 weeks pregnant with twins. Based on an ultrasound today, she says her doctor is saying that one of the twins may not make it to term. Is it possible to tell this this early in the pregnancy?
Hard to say: Without the study it is hard to guess what the doc was talking about.Only half of twins make it to term anyway. If the doc say some evidence of a size discrepancy between the twins, s/he may be anticipating loss of the smaller one. It happens some times. I would clarify this directly with the doc, since the meaning of the statement is so unclear. ...Read more
I was told that there is tests for HIV which can detect the infection in no time rather than waiting for many weeks is that right?
Rapid HIV Testing: Nationwide, hospitals and clinics are adopting rapid HIV tests that provide results in minutes. This allows immediate counseling and direction to appropriate places for care.

For example, we wouldn't want either parent to have unknown high cholesterol and die of a heart attack at age 44.

Isn't it to soon to get another ultrasound after only 1 month for complex cysts, will anything change? is there any other tests?
Complex cyst: If the cyst is most likely a hemorragic cyst, these are functional cysts that result from an ovarian follicle enlarging and not rupturing to release the egg as it normally would.
