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!
