Why You Should Get an Ultrasound Before Making a Choice About Your Pregnancy
You just found out you are pregnant. Now you need to decide what you will do. Circumstances in your life might be shouting one option or another, and the answer for you might seem clear. So, why should get an ultrasound before you choose?
The age we live in presents us with instant answers about many things, including pregnancy. New technology with pregnancy testing sometimes allows a woman to find out if she is pregnant even before she misses a period. However, the fact remains that up to 1/3 of all early pregnancies are lost to miscarriage.
This is where ultrasound technology can be valuable. An early ultrasound can show whether a pregnancy is viable, or will continue. By six weeks, the tiny heart beat should be clearly seen. If it is not, there is a chance the pregnancy may not continue. If the pregnancy will be lost, there is no sense in having to agonize over which option to choose.
At Assure Women’s Center, we are happy to provide a free early obstetric ultrasound for everyone who has a positive pregnancy test result. We want you to have the information you need to make an educated decision. You deserve clear, honest answers.
