From just over 5 weeks, see the associated website I had my first u/s done at less than five weeks I was probably 4.4 weeks, but all I showed was the yolk sac and the sac....no fetal pole or baby. == an internal ultrasound can detect a pregnancy much sooner than an external ultrasound, even if all it detects is a yolk sac.....there would not be a yolk sac if you were not pregnant.

It is possible that your health care provider will be able to detect your pregnancy on an ultrasound as early as your fifth or sixth week of pregnancy. However, the sac containing your baby and its heart is so small at this stage that it will probably be difficult to detect. Sometime around the 8th week of pregnancy is the best time to start being able to see your baby on an ultrasound.

External ultrasounds can only detect pregnancy when you are more than about 5-6 weeks wereas if you have an internel ultrasound they can detect pregnancy from as early as 4weeks. In answer to your question you are either not as far gone as originally thort and would have to have a internal ultrasound to dertimine/detect pregnancy or you are just not pregnant.AnswerI'm suprised that they wouldn't tell you when you got it done. The fetus at that age is so small its very possible that you could not see it. Or you are not as far along as you thought and it was just a yolk sack.
