Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand you are curious regarding the difference in gestational (pregnancy) age and the empty sac without any heartbeat seen. Do not worry as we will try to assist you in answering your question.

Since you mentioned that your menstruation is not regular, the gestational age will be calculated based on the scan and this is normal. Regarding the scan result, it is unlikely to detect any heartbeat if the pregnancy is less than 7 weeks. That is one of the reason why the doctor scheduled you for another appointment in another 2 weeks as your gestational age is 7 weeks by the time.

If you are still curious, we suggest you to contact our doctors online via teleconsultation so that we could assist you further.

We hope that our answer helps you. Thank you.
