A large yolk sac is one measuring about 5-6 mm in pregnancies between a gestational age of 5-10 weeks.. It can be associated with an increased risk of spontaneous miscarriage, blighted ovum etc.. Sometimes it will lead a normal pregnancy too... follow-up ultrasonography at 7-14 days to assess the pregnancy for viability is generally appropriate... Was there fetal cardiac acctivity seen??

Then wait for 15days , get another scan... in this interval if you have severe pain in abdomen or bleeding or spotting then immediately consult gynecologist...
