Your Most Important Next Step
Having an ultrasound is the most important next step you can take if you have a positive pregnancy test. An ultrasound will tell you how far along you are, if your pregnancy is viable (a heartbeat is detected) and to make sure your pregnancy is developing in the uterus. This information may determine what options are available to you.
What Is An Ultrasound?
An ultrasound is a simple and safe procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to confirm your pregnancy, detect a heartbeat and determine how far along you are. This information may determine what options are available to you. If you have a positive pregnancy test at Carolina Pregnancy Center, you will be assessed to be determine if you qualify for a free ultrasound. Make an appointment for a free pregnancy test and know for sure.
Ultrasound Before Abortion
An ultrasound is an important next step if you’re considering abortion. An ultrasound will determine how far along you are and the viability of your pregnancy. This information will help you determine what options are available to you, including possible abortion methods. An ultrasound may indicate if you might naturally miscarry, avoiding the need for an abortion.
Will I Have A Natural Miscarriage?
If you’re pregnant and considering abortion, you may not need one. Studies show that as many as 25% to 31% of early pregnancies end in natural miscarriage. An ultrasound will determine if a heartbeat is detected. Make an appointment at Carolina Pregnancy Center for a free pregnancy test and if positive, you will be assessed to be determine if you qualify for a free limited first trimester ultrasound.
Do I Have An Ectopic Pregnancy?
Ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg is growing anywhere outside of the uterus. This serious medical condition requires emergency medical attention. An ultrasound will show where the pregnancy is growing; however, we will refer you to a licensed physician.
