Positive pregnancy test and ultrasound on pink background


Do I need an ultrasound?

A home pregnancy test is an indicator of pregnancy, but it is not a confirmation. An obstetric ultrasound can help determine:

  • the approximate age of your pregnancy

  • if the pregnancy is viable

  • if there is a potentially life-threatening ectopic (tubal) pregnancy

  • abortion methods by trimester

  • if your pregnancy is developing under normal conditions

  • whether or not you are carrying a single fetus or multiples (depending on gestational age

If you think you may be pregnant and have not had an ultrasound yet, contact us today.

Do you need an ultrasound before an abortion?

If you have scheduled an abortion or considering the abortion pill, an ultrasound should be performed prior to a procedure or taking abortion pills. For your health and safety, it's important to rule out an ectopic pregnancy and talk to a nurse about your health history and medications. An ultrasound can also help determine the cost and type of an abortion.
