A positive pregnancy test does not reveal all the information you need to move forward with a decision.

Have you thought about getting an ultrasound? With everything to consider, an ultrasound can provide some clarity, like confirming your pregnancy’s location and how far along you are.

How Does An Ultrasound Work?

An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the content of your uterus. It’s a simple and safe procedure. Our ultrasound technician applies a gel to your abdomen to help conduct the sound waves.

Once the gel is applied, the technician will move an instrument called a transducer back and forth over the gel. The sound waves that reflect off your bones and other tissues are converted into images on a monitor. The technician will review the images with you if desired.

Why You Need An Ultrasound

Only an ultrasound can share essential information you need to move forward with your pregnancy. Experts estimate as many as 26% of pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage.

You can still receive a positive pregnancy test and no longer be pregnant. This is why an ultrasound is necessary.

These are the three main reasons an ultrasound is essential:

  1. It confirms your pregnancy has not miscarried
  1. It confirms how far along you are (gestational age)
  1. It locates the pregnancy (confirms whether it’s growing in the correct location or is ectopic)

An ultrasound confirms if you have an ectopic pregnancy, where the pregnancy develops outside the uterus, possibly in the fallopian tubes. An ectopic pregnancy can be life-threatening and needs medical attention immediately.
