Good HcG Levels, But Only a Gestational Sac

Jane Foley's picture


Dear Ms Ultrasound,
I'm not sure whether to worry about this or not. I had my last period between June 10th through June 14th. My OB confirmed the pregnancy and I haven't had any bleeding. My HcG levels my levels were good. Since I miscarried last year, she sent me for an ultrasound for viability and dates.

At my first ultrasound the sonographer saw an empty gestational sac. She said I may have a blighted ovum.

The following day I had more blood drawn for HCG levels. My levels were rising as they should. The OB said not to worry about a blighted ovum.
