Is this an ectopic pregnancy?

My last pregnancy was an Ectopic Pregnancy which was removed by operation. I am now 7 weeks pregnant. The Ultra sound scan I did showed an ‘intrauterine gestation sac but no foetal pole’. I was asked to come back in two weeks time. I hope this is not another ectopic Pregnancy?

No, it is not. Since the ultrasound showed ‘an intrauterine gestation sac’ it has confirmed the fact that your pregnancy is a real one in the proper place and not in the tube as is the case for ectopic pregnancies. An Ectopic pregnancy as the name implies is a pregnancy that is not in the womb (uterus). Usually, such pregnancies are in the fallopian tubes but your present pregnancy is in the proper place, the womb.
