By the end of six weeks of pregnancy, embryo is usually visible within the gestational sac. An empty gestational sac means that there is no embryo in the sac and the embryo has stopped developing. An empty sac is also called as a blighted ovum or anembryonic gestation. The reason for an empty sac can be any chromosomal abnormality in the fertilized egg.
Having an empty sac is a different issue during the initial and later weeks of pregnancy. If empty sac is present even after 8 weeks of pregnancy, then it means that there is some kind of risk associated with the pregnancy.
