A diagnostic ultrasound 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 a heartbeat. 25 % of 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!
