Confirm Your Pregnancy Details
Whichever pregnancy option you choose, the information provided by ultrasound is an essential first step in your decision-making process.
When considering an abortion, knowing how far along you are is necessary for determining the type of abortion procedure and the costs involved.
How It Works
Ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves to receive information that can be seen as an image on a screen. This type of imaging does not use radiation and is considered very safe. Images are produced by the ultrasound device, which creates a sound that will bounce back off observed tissues.
In pregnancy, ultrasounds help to verify pregnancy is not ectopic (outside the uterus, which can pose a severe risk to a woman’s health) and is viable (healthy and growing). It helps physicians understand if there are any possible complications or abnormalities and that growth is continuing as usual.
An ultrasound is safe and often used during pregnancy. According to Mayfair Diagnostics, “Ultrasound has been around for over sixty years and is considered safe since there are no known risks and it doesn’t use radiation. It’s one of the most commonly ordered imaging exams since it’s versatile, portable, relatively inexpensive, non-invasive, and can provide real-time information about the area of concern.”
