Durning my first ultra sound there is no heartbeat or fetus, I am about at 7 weeks, what's happening? I am 20 years old and very healthy

Hi. : Hi. This clearly is concerning for you. If it was a transvaginal ultrasound, a gestational sac might be visible at 5 weeks of gestation and the yolk sac would be seen shortly thereafter. Using the same type of ultrasound the fetal pole is often seen about 5 ½ to 6 ½ weeks. There might be a fetal heartbeat at that time. If there isn’t a heartbeat and the fetal pole is not seen, the transvaginal ultrasound can be repeated in 3 to 7 days. By week 7, a heartbeat would be expected. You need to ask your doctor for an interpretation of the ultrasound results. Causes could be that the conception dates are off, a miscarriage, a blighted ovum or an ectopic pregnancy. Take care. ...Read more
