Gestational sac

I had a Sono on July 18 it showed I was about 5 to 6 weeks but there was only a gestational sac. I started bleeding on July 17 I went back in today for a sonogram August 10 and there was still only a gestational sac that showed I was between 2 to 4 weeks my question is could the Sonos front today show a new pregnancy or does it take a while for your body to release the Gestational sac?

We had the same thing. The body can take a while to realise that things aren't progressing normally. My wife ended up having a small procedure to remove it as, if left too long, it could become a risk of infection.


I had the same issue in my previous pregnancy. I started bleeding at around 11 weeks so was sent for a scan. The ultrasound showed a sac that was about 6 weeks old but no baby. It can take a while for the body to pick up the abnormality. I ended up having a miscarriage at 12 weeks and was advised it was lower risk to let things happen naturally rather than having a procedure. I don't think you'll be able to have a new pregnancy until your body releases the current one. Technically your body still thinks you're pregnant and is still producing the hcg pregnancy hormone, which will stop you ovulating and getting pregnant...but I could be wrong.
