Did you know that a positive pregnancy test result alone isn’t enough to confirm your pregnancy? Sometimes, hCG levels can be high due to health complications. Other times, you may have experienced a miscarriage since receiving the positive test result.

Read on to learn more about the importance of an ultrasound. Or, if you think you might be pregnant and are looking for a no-cost ultrasound, contact us today to schedule your confidential appointment.

How Does an Ultrasound Work?

An ultrasound is a scan that uses sound waves to create an image of what’s going on inside your body.

During pregnancy, there are two types of ultrasounds used: transvaginal and abdominal. A transvaginal ultrasound is used early in pregnancy and involves gently inserting the transducer (the wand-like device) into your vagina. An abdominal ultrasound can be used later in pregnancy, and it involves a nurse moving the transducer along your abdomen.

How Does an Ultrasound Protect my health?

An ultrasound gives you the critical details you need to know about your pregnancy that will help keep you safe. These details include:

  • Gestational Age: Knowing the gestational age of your pregnancy is essential no matter what pregnancy choice you make. If you’re considering abortion, your pregnancy’s gestational age will determine what options you’re eligible for. If you’re thinking about parenting or adoption, you will need to ensure that your pregnancy’s measurements align to the estimated age (this can help detect abnormalities or health complications).
  • Pregnancy Location: Sometimes, a pregnancy will develop outside the uterus. This is a life-threatening complication known as ectopic pregnancy. If you’re experiencing one, you will need emergency medical treatment.
  • Pregnancy Viability: Roughly 26% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. It’s possible that you’ve miscarried without showing any immediate signs. If you’ve experienced a miscarriage, you will need medical oversight to ensure you don’t have any complications.
