Why Ultrasounds Are Important
An ultrasound is one of the ways to actually confirm your pregnancy. It can also tell you how many weeks pregnant you are, which could determine which options are available to you and whether it is an ectopic (or tubal) pregnancy, which can be life threatening. If you are considering parenting or placing for adoption, having an ultrasound allows us to provide documentation to help you apply for insurance and other resources that require confirmation of pregnancy.
It is important you do not consider a chemical abortion or take the abortion pills without first having an ultrasound to verify viability and gestational age.
Risk of taking Chemical Abortion Pills Without Having an Ultrasound:
- Ectopic Pregnancy
- Incomplete Abortion
Please note, each client must first have a pregnancy test and nurse consultation before an ultrasound can be scheduled. Make an appointment for a free pregnancy test today.
Will I get my ultrasound the same day as my pregnancy test?
After receiving a positive pregnancy test at our clinic, our medical staff will determine whether an ultrasound can be performed at that time or whether it will be necessary to schedule another appointment.
Can I bring someone to the appointment with me?
Yes, we welcome our clients to bring their partner, a friend, or a family member to view the ultrasound with them.
