Hello. What does this mean in the transvaginal exam? Walled off rupture ectopic pregnanct?

Ectopics can kill: I am assuming that you are referring to a transvaginal ultrasound. If you (or someone you know) has a positive pregnancy test, and an ultrasound has been done (presumably for pain) and the findings are that of a "walled off ruptured ectopic", then hopefully this person has already been to the or to have this treated.

NO: Embryological age is different than gestational age. Doctors use gestational age which starts at the 1st day of the last normal menstrual period. Embryological age starts at the time of conception. 7 5/7 gestation means the embryo is 5 5/7. You likely conceived 5 5/7 before july 29th (plus or minus 5 or so days due to the inaccuracy of the us ).You are 2 weeks "gestational age" when you conceive. ...Read more

If I had a transvaginal ultrasound and they said I am 7 weeks and 1 day, does that mean that I conceived 7 wk 1 d ago? Or 2 weeks after that?

If I had a transvaginal ultrasound and they said I am 7 weeks and 1 day, does that mean that I conceived 7 wk 1 d ago? Or 2 weeks after that?

2 weeks after: The estimated age of the pregnancy that you are given during an ultrasound is an estimate of how long it has been since the first day of your last menstrual period. Ovulation and conception occurs, on average, 2 weeks after that, but varies from one woman to another. Also, the estimate of 7 weeks 1 day they gave you is only accurate to within about 1 week ...Read more
