What Is An Ultrasound?
Ultrasound uses sound waves to produce a picture of the inside of your uterus. A technician will apply a gel substance to your abdomen and rub a wand-like instrument called a transducer through the gel.
From the echoes of the sound waves, an image forms on a computer screen, and the technician will point out what you’re seeing. In addition the technician listens for a detectable heartbeat.
Why Do I Need An Ultrasound?
The Mayo Clinic reports up to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. You can still get a positive result on a pregnancy test and no longer be pregnant for days or even weeks following a miscarriage.
Ultrasound Answers Three Critical Questions:
Is My Pregnancy Viable?
An ultrasound scan can determine if your pregnancy is growing with a detectable heartbeat or if you have miscarried.
How Far Along Am I?
Knowing the gestational age (how many weeks you’ve been pregnant) is critical, especially if you are considering abortion. The gestational age of your pregnancy determines various abortion procedures.
By measuring the pregnancy, the technician can determine how many weeks you’ve been pregnant.
Do I Have An Ectopic Pregnancy?
Although rare, some pregnancies develop outside the uterus. This pregnancy is known as ectopic. This type of pregnancy is extremely dangerous and can even be fatal.
You must see your healthcare provider, not an abortion provider if you are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy.
