If you’ve decided or are thinking about taking the abortion pill, you first need an ultrasound. An ultrasound is essential to give you more information about your pregnancy so you can stay healthy and safe. Before continuing with any pregnancy option, it’s a key step in the pregnancy confirmation process. 

We’re here for you at Mendo Lake Women’s Clinic and offer no-cost and confidential ultrasounds to help you along the way. Be informed about everything you need with an ultrasound today.

1. Determines What Abortion Procedure You’re Eligible For

After confirming your pregnancy with lab-quality pregnancy testing, an ultrasound is your next step! Certain abortion procedures are done at different points of pregnancy. Taking the abortion pill, also known as medication abortion, is only for women who are 10 weeks pregnant and under. To confirm how far along you are, an ultrasound is necessary. 

2. Tells You If Your Pregnancy Is Viable

What does it mean to know if your pregnancy is viable? Though you may have already gotten a positive pregnancy test result, it doesn’t necessarily mean your pregnancy is viable. Pregnancy viability means you have a healthy pregnancy, with a heartbeat.

3. Alerts You To Any Health Complications

With an ultrasound, you can be alerted about a possible miscarriage.  Some women experience a miscarriage and don’t know it until an ultrasound. 

Others experience ectopic pregnancy – which is where the pregnancy is growing outside of the uterus and can no longer survive. Surgery will most likely be needed right away for an ectopic pregnancy. Get clarity about the health of your pregnancy today.
