Wondering if you need an ultrasound? It’s important not to skip over this step. It’s a crucial part of pregnancy confirmation once you have received a positive result on a pregnancy test.

Ultrasounds safeguard your health before a pregnancy decision by confirming essential pregnancy details.

1. Confirm Your Pregnancy’s Viability

After you receive a positive result from a pregnancy test, you still need more information regarding your pregnancy. To know if your pregnancy is viable (if it is progressing and has a detectable heartbeat), you will need an ultrasound.

Did you know that up to 26% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage? Many women are unaware of when it happens and still receive a positive pregnancy test result. Miscarriage could require further medical treatment and monitoring if it has happened to you.

2. Confirm How Far Along You Are

Also known as your pregnancy’s gestational age, knowing how far along you are is essential information when considering your options.

It’s important to note that medical abortion is only FDA-approved through ten weeks of gestation. Going ahead with a medical abortion without knowing your gestational age isn’t a safe choice and could cause issues for you.

3. Confirm Your Pregnancy’s Location

A normal, healthy pregnancy is located in the uterus. Some women experience ectopic pregnancies, a condition when the fertilized egg implants in a location other than the uterus, such as a fallopian tube. If not treated right away, ectopic pregnancies are dangerous to a woman’s health.
