How an Ultrasound Can Help You Decide

Are you facing an unplanned pregnancy and not sure how to move forward with your pregnancy decision? There are so many emotions you may be feeling at this time – fear, excitement, anger, or confusion. Don’t rush to make a decision. You have time to learn more about your pregnancy and what your pregnancy options are.

Take time to talk to a medical professional and receive an ultrasound. It is a powerful tool to help you decide what to do next in your pregnancy journey.

What Is An Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is an imaging technique that uses sound waves to create images of the fetus. The technician’s ultrasound images can provide you with vital information about your pregnancy that you need when looking at your options. The details and development of the pregnancy can significantly impact your decision.

A pregnancy test is your first step to confirm your pregnancy. Then an ultrasound is next to confirm essential details. An ultrasound confirms your pregnancy by revealing:

  1. If you have a viable pregnancy
  2. The location of your pregnancy
  3. How far along you are in your pregnancy

Know Your Risks & Options

Another important reason for an ultrasound is to become aware of any health risks or concerns with your pregnancy. A miscarriage is common in pregnant women. Also, you could have an ectopic pregnancy. In an ectopic pregnancy, a fertilized egg attaches outside the uterus, which causes serious health risks. With an ultrasound, you are aware of pregnancy conditions like these and can seek necessary medical help.

To move forward with any pregnancy option, you need to know your pregnancy details. If you are considering abortion, an ectopic pregnancy could prevent you from moving forward. An ectopic pregnancy is not treatable with abortion. You would require special treatment from a medical professional. If not detected or left untreated, an ectopic pregnancy could even be life-threatening.
