Could I still have a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy if the Sono showed a sac in the uterus?

In brief: Yes…

But these are 2 different questions.
If there is a true gestational sac in the uterus, there can still be a chance of miscarriage. This risk drops dramatically to less than 5% when an embryo with a heartbeat is seen. It is also possible to have an ectopic pregnancy with a gestational sac in the uterus but this is rare, about 1 in 30,000 naturally conceived pregnancies.
