Do you need an ultrasound? If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy or you aren’t sure yet, a pregnancy test is only your first step of pregnancy confirmation. You also need an ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy! A positive pregnancy test does not reveal all the information you need to move forward with a decision.

There are three main reasons an ultrasound is essential, including:

  1. It confirms you have a viable pregnancy (the pregnancy has not miscarried or is ectopic)
  1. It confirms how far along you are (gestational age)
  1. It locates the pregnancy (confirm whether it’s growing within the uterus)
