Unplanned pregnancy.
Hi,

So today I did a home pregnancy test and found out I was pregnant. I am so confused however, I have worked out I should be 6-7 weeks, but recently around 3-4 weeks ago I went for a pap smear and the doctor referred me to get an ultra-sound as he was worried about pains I was experiencing. When I got the results back he just said I had a abnormal cervix's and would need more regular pap smears.

My question is how could I got for a ultrasound, which was internal, and not pick this up? Is that common?

Hi there.  Welcome.  Well, these are two completely different tests looking at two different things.  No, an ultrasound wouldn't pick up abnormal cells on a cervix.  A pap is what does that.  So, they are not correlated at all.  Are they going to do anything about your abnormal pap?

Did you get an external ultrasound as well or just the internal?  If it was just the internal, it may not have been able to pick up a mass inside the uterus itself.

it could have been too early to detect a pregnancy. i had a friend who went in for an ultrasound at 5 weeks, and the baby was miniscule. at 7 weeks i was told me baby was 1/2 an inch long lol so yes i see it could be possible
