Not sure what’s next after confirming your pregnancy with a medical-grade pregnancy test? Your next step is an ultrasound appointment. An ultrasound tells you all you need to know about your pregnancy and your options.
Before deciding on a pregnancy decision, it’s essential to get your pregnancy details confirmed with an ultrasound today. An ultrasound will give you valuable information about your pregnancy that a pregnancy test simply cannot.
Confirm Your Pregnancy
An ultrasound is your second step in the pregnancy confirmation process. After receiving a positive pregnancy test, an ultrasound confirms three things, including…
- The viability of your pregnancy (it’s healthy, growing)
- The location of your pregnancy (if it’s within the uterus or not)
- How far along you are (gestational age)
Know About Potential Risks
With any pregnancy, there is always a chance you could experience pregnancy complications. An ultrasound will alert you to any potential pregnancy risks or health complications. Some women experience ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy located outside the uterus), which is a non-viable pregnancy that could be potentially life-threatening.
Some health risks could even prevent you from having certain pregnancy options, so it’s vital that you don’t skip this step of the process.
How Does An Ultrasound Work?
Ultrasounds are very simple and pain-free. During an ultrasound, a healthcare professional uses an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture images inside your body. A device called a transducer reveals the inside of your uterus and sends sound waves into your body, receiving the echoes that bounce back, and creating images on a screen.
