What’s your next step to pregnancy confirmation? You’re not alone in your pregnancy journey. If you are considering your options, an ultrasound is a powerful tool used to collect information about your pregnancy. It reveals what options you have and your eligibility for different procedures.
Confirm Your Pregnancy
While a pregnancy test is an important first step, an ultrasound goes a step further to reveal key details about your pregnancy. An ultrasound tells you three important details, including:
- If you have a viable pregnancy
- The location of your pregnancy
- How far along you are in your pregnancy
How An Ultrasound Works
An ultrasound is an imaging technique that uses sound waves to produce images of the fetus. This procedure is performed in the first trimester and is usually pain-free, but may cause slight discomfort if you are experiencing abdominal pain.
Ultrasounds can provide you with the vital information you need when looking into your pregnancy options as the development of the pregnancy could impact your decision.
Alert You Of Any Risks
It’s important to know where your pregnancy health stands, or possible risks you may experience in your pregnancy. Both ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage are common in pregnant women today.
With an ectopic pregnancy, a fertilized egg attaches outside the uterus, causing a serious health risk. Since 1 out of every 50 pregnancies is ectopic, and about 10 to 20% of pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage, it’s important to know where you stand.
With an ultrasound, you can be aware of pregnancy conditions like these and seek necessary medical attention.
