Only an ultrasound can determine with accuracy how far along you are. It is possible to estimate gestational age from the first day of your last period, but a free, limited, obstetrical ultrasound scan in our office by a certified sonographer can determine the following:
- The gestational age – how far along you are
- If the pregnancy is viable – progressing normally
If you are considering an abortion, have a free ultrasound in our office first. Many pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage, and an ultrasound may help determine this. There is no obligation on your part to make any decision one way or another if you have an ultrasound in our office.
Our ultrasounds are not intended to diagnose abnormalities or gender. We always recommend that you see your OB/GYN doctor as soon as possible, and we will provide you with doctor referrals if you need them.
Preparing for an Ultrasound:
There is nothing special you have to do to prepare for an ultrasound in our office or mobile unit. Our certified sonographer will explain the procedure every step of the way. You can feel confident you are in good hands! Feel free to call our office to ask any questions you may have.
