Maybe you’re wondering if you need an ultrasound? Is it really necessary?
Yes – it’s essential to confirm your pregnancy with an ultrasound and get answers about your pregnancy before moving forward with any pregnancy decision. During an ultrasound, you will learn vital information about your pregnancy that a pregnancy test simply cannot tell you.
Confirm Your Pregnancy
An ultrasound is your second step to pregnancy verification. Three things an ultrasound shows you after a positive pregnancy test is…
- Whether your pregnancy is viable (healthy & growing)
- The location of your pregnancy (if it’s within the uterus or not)
- Learn how far along you are (gestational age)
What Is an Ultrasound?
The process is simple – an ultrasound uses an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture images inside your uterus.
A device called a transducer shows the inside of your uterus and sends out sound waves into your body and receives the echoes that bounce back, creating images on a screen.
Alerts you to Potential Risks
Some women experience pregnancy complications like ectopic pregnancy (where the pregnancy grows outside the uterus) or miscarriage. To determine if this is the case, an ultrasound is needed.
An ultrasound alerts you to both potential pregnancy risks and health complications. Some health risks could eliminate pregnancy options for you, so it’s vital you don’t skip this step of pregnancy verification.
