Once you have taken a positive pregnancy test at Assure Women’s Center, your next best step is to receive a limited obstetric ultrasound. Through this service, we can confirm whether you have a viable pregnancy. If you believe you might be pregnant, contact us today for a pregnancy test and subsequent ultrasound.
What does an ultrasound do?
An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to reveal the contents of your uterus, determine fetal heartbeat and see how many weeks along you are in your pregnancy. Additionally, this procedure can expose the possibility that you may miscarry or have an ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy may be life-threatening, so it’s important to identify this risk right away.
Why do I need an ultrasound?
While a positive pregnancy test can indicate pregnancy, the only way to confirm if your pregnancy is viable is through an ultrasound. Having an ultrasound is imperative to the decision-making process, no matter what option you’re considering. Even if you’re wanting an abortion, you’ll need to obtain a proof of pregnancy and learn how far along you are to determine which type of procedure you can have.
