A woman in her 20s came to the gynecologic clinic because of a positive pregnancy test and a history of a previous ectopic pregnancy. The vaginal ultrasonography performed by Dr. Jesper Agrell showed a gestational sac in the cervix as displayed in the sagittal plane. The corpus of the uterus is located at right in the image. There was a discernible heartbeat, and the gestational sac diameter corresponded to a gestational age of 5 weeks. The distance from the gestational sac to the external orifice was only 15 millimeters.
