How late can you detect a heartbeat from twin pregnancy with transvaginal ultra sound? If demise of one twin will other twin have issues?

Twin is high risk..: Generally, embryonic cardiac activity is seen between 5 and 6 menstrual weeks of pregnancy - single or twins or triplets. If both fetuses share a single placenta (monochorionic, monoamniotic placentation), and if one is demised, the other will likely have problems. A main concern is the effects of twin-twin transfusion. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

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

Non-invasive prenatal genetic testing is now available. ...Read more

I think im on my 2 week of pregnancy or 3. I did the sonogram but it doesn't really shows a lot yeat. Only the empty sock?

I think im on my 2 week of pregnancy or 3. I did the sonogram but it doesn't really shows a lot yeat. Only the empty sock?

Wait for 6 weeks: Ultrasound will not show a developing fetus until after 5-6 weeks of pregnancy. At an earlier stage it will show the gestational sac. Unless you are having bleeding and cramps, you don't need to have an ultrasound at this early stage of your pregnancy. If you continue to have symptoms, and a repeat ultrasound continues to show an empty sac, this is likely a blighted ovum. Hcg levels are also key. ...Read more

Get full GYN exam: Positive pregnancy test means something somewhere in your body is producing the hormone HCG which is detected in the urine. That something can be a normal embryo in the uterus, an embryo outside the uterus (tubal pregnancy), molar pregnancy (incomplete embyo) or an HCG-producing tumor. All these possibilities need to be explored urgently. ...Read more

What does it mean when an ultrasound show a gestation sac and your tubes has been tied for 10 years.

Pregnancy: I can't comment on the viability of this pregnancy but if there's a gestational sac on ultrasound then you're pregnant and your tubes are definitely not tied anymore. It may have been working long ago, but there's always the 0.5% risk of failure. See a doctor to discuss your options for managing this pregnancy. ...Read more
