Why should I get an ultrasound?

A diagnostic ultrasound, provided by our on-site affiliated medical professional, can give you important information specific to your situation.

It can tell you if the pregnancy is inside the uterus, where it is supposed to be, or if it is outside the uterus where it is not supposed to be.  Which could in some cases, be a medical emergency.

It can tell you if the pregnancy is viable if the baby has cardiac activity. It is estimated that as many as 26% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage

It can also tell you how far along in the pregnancy you are. For a woman considering abortion, this is important information because it dictates which abortion procedure would be used.

It allows you to see inside your body, something you normally can’t do!

I am being forced to have an abortion. Can you help me?

Yes, we can provide you with important information about your rights and refer you for legal help if you decide you need it.

What are the signs of an std?

While there are a few common signs of STDs, many STDs are silent and do not show any symptoms.

  • Fever and chills
  • Pain during urination
  • Itching or swelling near or on the genitals
  • Pain during sex
  • Unusual discharge from the genitals

If you are sexually active, it is a good idea to get tested regularly by your provider.

When should I get an ultrasound?

You should get an ultrasound before you consider your pregnancy options so that you have information about your pregnancy.  At your appointment you will see an on-site licensed medical professional who will conduct a pregnancy test and do a brief health assessment to determine if you meet the medical criteria to receive a diagnostic ultrasound.  If you meet the criteria, you will receive your ultrasound, from our affiliated medical professionals, at your appointment that day.

How do I know if I am pregnant?

Some common early signs of pregnancy include:

  • Missed period
  • Fatigue
  • Spotting and cramping
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Mood swings

While these can help you determine if you’re pregnant, the only way to know for sure is with a pregnancy test and ultrasound.
