pregnancy complications

Hi doc.

my sister is around 5 weeks pregnant, but the gynae is unable to pick up a heart beat or see anything within the sac. she had a few blood tests done and we have confirmed that she is pregnant. she was at the gynae 2 weeks ago and he said that she was 5 weeks prenant. she went back yesterday and was told again that she is 5 weeks pregnant, but is unable to see anything withing the sac in the womb.
what are your thoughts on this?

If there has been no change in two weeks, then it sounds like the pregnancy will not continue. This is called a missed abortion.
