Once you have taken a positive pregnancy test at Women’s Care Medical Center, your next step is to receive a limited obstetric ultrasound.

An ultrasound can confirm whether you have a viable pregnancy and how far along you are.  An ultrasound can also confirm if the pregnancy is located within the uterus.  A pregnancy outside the uterus cannot survive and may be considered a medical emergency.

By having this imaging procedure, you will be protecting your health and safety, too!


Ultrasound are a safe imaging technique without any known risks.  They are usually fast, and you can receive your results the same day during the appointment.  An ultrasound is an imaging procedure using echoes from high-frequency sound waves to reveal the contents of your uterus.

These sound waves are then converted to images on a screen, and a medical professional called a sonographer or ultrasound technician can read these images and provide you with information about your pregnancy, options, and health.


Ultrasound will not only identify your options, but also ensure you’re protecting your health. Below is a list of how an ultrasound can help you:

  • It provides information on the viability of the pregnancy. Some pregnancies end in a miscarriage, which is usually not due to anything the woman has done. A medical professional can ensure this process happens without complications.
  • It tells you how far along you are. Some abortion procedures are not an option if the pregnancy is past a certain number of gestational weeks. An ultrasound can ensure that you understand what options are available.
  • It identifies the location of the pregnancy. Sometimes a pregnancy complication, such as an ectopic pregnancy, can occur and be a risk to your health. Ensuring the pregnancy is located in the right place can help protect your safety. If an ectopic pregnancy does occur, you will likely need medical intervention to ensure no complications arise.
