Before choosing to have an abortion, gathering as much information as possible is very important. This helps you make a choice that’s right for you. One critical step is getting an ultrasound.

At the Southern Ohio Pregnancy Center, we can help you find a place to get an ultrasound so you can learn more about your pregnancy. Please get in touch with us. Here are three reasons why getting an ultrasound is essential before an abortion.

1. Knowing The Age Of Your Pregnancy

An ultrasound reveals the gestational age of your pregnancy or how far along you are. This will largely determine what type of abortion procedure you are eligible for.

For instance, a medical abortion (the abortion pill) is only FDA-approved through ten weeks of gestation. Taking the abortion pill past ten weeks puts your health at risk for severe complications.

2. Revealing The Viability Of Your Pregnancy

About 26% of pregnancies result in miscarriage, and an ultrasound can show if this has happened to you. If it turns out you’ve had a miscarriage, you’ll require a different kind of care instead of an abortion.

3. Understanding The Location Of Your Pregnancy

A natural pregnancy occurs when an embryo implants in the uterus. In rare cases, an embryo can be implanted outside of the uterus. This is called an ectopic pregnancy

An ultrasound can determine the location of your pregnancy to rule out an ectopic pregnancy, which is a serious medical condition that requires immediate treatment. Again, in this case, an abortion would not be the correct procedure.
