Pregnancies of Unknown Location

Pregnancy of unknown location (PUL) is a term used to describe a situation where there is no evidence of a gestation either intra-or extrauterine on transvaginal sonography (TVS) in women seeking medical attention for various reasons in early pregnancy. The principal tool in PUL management besides TVS is the interpretation of the change in serial serum human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) levels.
