Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Sometimes, the pregnancy will be detected late on ultrasound.
  • If she has no problem and the urine pregnancy test is positive, then repeat the ultrasound after two weeks.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • There is no pregnancy in this scan, but endometrium is thick. So, there may be late conception.
  • If the urine pregnancy test is positive, then repeat the ultrasound after two weeks.
  • Often pregnancy is seen after two weeks in the second scan. Otherwise, as suggested in the report you can go for TVS (transvaginal scan) and beta hCG test (human chorionic gonadotropin).
