Normal pregnancy vs. anembryonic pregnancy

An anembryonic pregnancy occurs when embryo implantation takes place and the pregnancy test is positive, but there is not yolk sac or embryo development. The ultrasound scan shows an empty gestational sac, without a fetus inside.

After a diagnosis of an anembryonic pregnancy, the only treatment possible is an abortion, followed by a D&C.
