Ask a Gynaecologist and Get Answers to Your OB/GYN Questions ASAP
Hello, and thank you for your question. I will be happy to assist you. Answers are for educational purposes only.
What was the date of your loss?
If you only had sex on 11/23/14, then it is possible that the ultrasound will show what it did. It is within the margin of error of the ultrasound.
I agree to repeat the ultrasound in one week. That will show you if there has been any interval growth between then and now.
Also, you can check HCG levels now and two days later to see if it is rising appropriately. That will at least give you some information in advance of the next ultrasound.
But it is not impossible that the ultrasound is showing that you are 4 weeks and 1 day....because it is within the one week margin of error. The only way to know for sure that it is a viable pregnancy is to do the tests and give it time to see how it progresses.
I wish you the best and hope that it is viable and that you just caught it very early.
Have you had any bleeding or cramping now?
Great. It is still possible that the ultrasound is within the margin of error. It is just too soon to make a definitive assessment. Repeating the ultrasound in one week will be very helpful and then again a week after that to potentially see a heartbeat. In the meantime, the blood tests will demonstrate whether you are showing rising HCG levels. You could also check a progesterone level and that can give you information as well. Less than 5 is very concerning for an impending loss.
That is good....
Progesterone is released from the corpus luteal cyst in your ovary supporting the pregnancy.
Over 25 is considered a good sign for a developing pregnancy.
So far so good.....time will tell how things progress.
All the signs so far are good.
I will keep my fingers crossed this week for you.
