Limited Ultrasounds

Limited Ultrasounds

Our highly trained medical staff will be glad to provide you with a no charge, confidential limited ultrasound. You will then be provided with accurate information on your pregnancy status, as well as the information and referrals you need.

A limited ultrasound is the one sure way to know if you are pregnant. It also determines how far along you are and if the pregnancy is viable. Limited ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves, which bounce off of the fetus and produce a picture. The picture is then projected onto a screen where the heart beat can be observed. The beating heart is one important indicator that the pregnancy may be viable and likely to continue its natural course. The embryo can also be measured to determine gestational age and an accurate due date.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Even if you are considering abortion it is important that you first have a limited ultrasound. Over 30% of all pregnancies, even when the test is positive, do not develop into a viable fetus. The limited ultrasound can show if the fetus is in the uterus and if its heart is beating. The limited ultrasound can also reveal if the pregnancy is likely ectopic. Ectopic pregnancies occur when a fertilized egg does not make it out of the fallopian tube. This can cause the tube to rupture as the embryo grows. This is a life-threatening condition which requires immediate medical attention.
