What is an Ultrasound?
An ultrasound goes a step further to identify important details of your pregnancy. It’s necessary before deciding on abortion, as it determines if you qualify.
An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to show images of the contents of the uterus. Your first ultrasound is normally done during your first trimester to confirm your pregnancy. An ultrasound reveals three important details of your pregnancy, including:
- How far along you are (the gestational age)
- The location of the pregnancy (if it’s growing within your uterus or not)
- Confirms viability (if it’s healthy and growing)
Do I Need an Ultrasound?
Absolutely. An ultrasound is necessary to determine what pregnancy options are available to you and confirm your pregnancy health. While a pregnancy test indicates that you are pregnant, there is more information that you will need before deciding what’s next.
An ultrasound will alert you to any possible pregnancy complications. If your pregnancy is ectopic, meaning the embryo implants outside of the uterus, it will not result in a live birth. Ectopic pregnancy can be potentially life-threatening and will need medical attention right away. An ultrasound is the only way to accurately tell you the location and gestational age of your pregnancy.
