Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 2 months ago.

Yolk sac attaches outside the developing embryo and is connected to the umbilical cord by a yolk stalk. This yolk sac acts as the preliminary circulatory system and provides preliminary nutrition to the baby.

If you think you have aborted, you would still require an ultrasound to confirm it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
