A positive pregnancy test result isn’t enough information to determine the next steps of your unplanned pregnancy. Ultrasound is the only way to get the information you need.
At Fayette Pregnancy Resource Center, we offer free ultrasounds to qualified clients. Schedule your appointment to see if you qualify.
Why Do I Need An Ultrasound?
There are three critical questions that only an ultrasound can answer.
Is your pregnancy viable, or Have You Miscarried?
More than 20% of pregnancies end in a miscarriage, you’ll need an ultrasound to determine if your pregnancy is viable. A viable or growing pregnancy means you haven’t miscarried, and a heartbeat is detectable.
How far along is your pregnancy?
Sometimes a woman needs help in dating her pregnancy because she doesn’t recall her last period, or her periods are irregular. Only ultrasound can accurately determine how far along your pregnancy is (gestational age), giving you a better idea of your available options. For example, if you are more than 10 weeks 0 days pregnant you may have to have a surgical abortion.
Where is the pregnancy located?
Some pregnancies form on the outside of the uterus. They are known as ectopic pregnancies and are extremely dangerous, possibly fatal, and require immediate medical care.
