When an anembryonic pregnancy occurs, that is, there is a gestational sac without an embryo inside it, it is normal for a miscarriage to occur and for the embryo to be expelled. However, sometimes a uterine curettage must be performed once this type of pregnancy has been confirmed by transvaginal ultrasound.
