Reasons You Need an Ultrasound Before Abortion

Reasons You Need an Ultrasound before Abortion

We always recommend getting an ultrasound before making a pregnancy decision, especially if you’re considering abortion. 

Safeguard your health by getting an ultrasound before an abortion, and learn the important details of your pregnancy to determine your pregnancy options. Be alerted to any potential pregnancy complications.  

Confirm Three Key Details

1. Confirm Viability 

Did you know that 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage? An ultrasound is essential in confirming viability, which is a healthy and progressing pregnancy. Protect your health and safety by getting an ultrasound today to determine this important detail of your pregnancy.

2. Confirm How Far Along You Are

How far along your pregnancy is, also known as gestational age, is important to determine your options. Medical abortion, known as the abortion pill, is only FDA-approved through 10 weeks of pregnancy. 

If you have a pregnancy over 10 weeks, surgical abortion may be a safer option for you. An ultrasound can tell you how far along you are and what your next steps are. 

3. Determine the Location of Pregnancy  

Knowing the location of your pregnancy is vital for protecting your health. Women sometimes experience ectopic pregnancy, where a pregnancy grows outside of the uterus. 

With this pregnancy complication, a woman would not be eligible for abortion, but medical attention would be needed right away, as this condition could be life-threatening if not treated right away.
