Do I Need An Ultrasound?

Yes, an ultrasound will help you better understand your pregnancy details! Though it seems scary – the process is simple. We know how deciding on any pregnancy option is challenging. You know the decision will affect your life, but you have to make one. It can be stressful. We understand.

If you’re considering abortion, remember that even though you might feel pressured or rushed, safety precautions should always be taken before any medical procedure. Especially for abortion, an ultrasound should always be performed first. 

What Does An Ultrasound Do?

What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves to determine details of your pregnancy. It’s a very safe procedure where an ultrasound technician has you lie down on the examination table and applies a special gel to your abdomen. This gel works to conduct the sound waves. 

The technician will move the transducer device back and forth over the gel and the sound waves are converted into images on a screen. The technician will go over the images with you and share with you what you’re seeing.

Reveals Vital Pregnancy Details

To get more specific, an ultrasound confirms three things about your pregnancy, including:

  1. The viability of your pregnancy (if there is a heartbeat & the pregnancy is progressing)
  2. The location of your pregnancy (whether it’s growing within your uterus or not)
  3. How far along you are (the gestational age)

If there are any health or pregnancy complications, you will be alerted to these with an ultrasound. This is why it’s essential that you don’t skip this step in your journey. It determines what your pregnancy options are.
