Do I need an ultrasound?
If you have had a positive pregnancy test, it is important to get an ultrasound, because an ultrasound will give you more information. Here’s some of the information an ultrasound can give you that a pregnancy test will not:
Not the relationship kind, the timing kind. While a pregnancy test only reveals the presents or absence of HCG hormones, an ultrasound will help determine how far along into the pregnancy you are, which is important if you’re considering abortion because it will determine the type of procedure you can have.
An ultrasound is also important because it will reveal where the pregnancy is. Sometimes the embryo will implant somewhere outside the uterus, which can be life-threatening for you. It’s important to know this as soon as possible before further health complications arise.
It is estimated that as many as 26% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage, and most miscarriages happen in the first trimester. An ultrasound will give information about your pregnancy so you can make informed decisions.
Like all of our affiliated services, our ultrasounds are of no cost to you and confidential. We’ll never reveal your appointment or any details about your visit to anyone else, in accordance with HIPAA regulations and out of concern for your privacy and ability to make decisions free of pressure.
