Why get an ultrasound?
Getting an ultrasound before an abortion may seem like a waste of time and or money. However, there are several reasons to get an ultrasound, not limited to the fact that many states require you to get an ultrasound before an abortion.
• To conclude if your pregnancy is viable.
Sometimes pregnancy test detects a positive reading, but the fetal heartbeat is nonexistent
when an ultrasound is performed.
• To decipher how far along you are in your pregnancy.
To know what type of abortion you need, you will need to know how far you are in your
pregnancy. Many women come in thinking they’re further along than they are or vice
versa. A due date can only be determined during an ultrasound.
• To confirm the pregnancy in the uterus.
A pregnancy that is not in the uterus is called an Ectopic Pregnancy. According to the
Mayo Clinic, an ectopic pregnancy can’t proceed normally. The fertilized egg can’t
survive, and the growing tissue may cause life-threatening bleeding if left untreated.
• To determine if you’re miscarrying.
According to March of Dimes, we recommend an ultrasound because 50%
of pregnancies may end in miscarriage. If your body terminates the pregnancy on its
own, you will not need to get an abortion. You could potentially save yourself hundreds
of dollars by getting an ultrasound done now.
• To identify more than one fetus.
Even if you’re leaning towards an abortion, knowing how many fetuses you are carrying is imperative to know.
