Our highly trained and experienced medical staff will be glad to provide you with a free, confidential ultrasound. You will then be provided with accurate information on your pregnancy status, as well as the information and referrals you need.
One sure way that we can help you to find out if you are pregnant, and then determine approximately how far along you are, is through a limited ultrasound. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves which “bounce” off of the baby and produce a picture on a screen of it moving around in the uterus.
With ultrasound, the gestational sac can be seen as early as 4 ½ weeks. The tiny embryo can be observed and measured by 5 ½ weeks, which is also the point we can begin to tell if the pregnancy is viable and able to continue on its natural course. Using measurement, we can usually estimate how many weeks old the baby is.
If you are considering abortion, it is important that you first have an ultrasound. Approximately 30% of all positive pregnancy tests do not continue until birth. An ultrasound can show if the heart is beating and the baby is located in the uterus. Some fertilized eggs never make it out of the fallopian tubes and can cause the tube to rupture as it grows larger. This is called an ectopic pregnancy. An ultrasound can indicate if you should seek immediate medical attention.
