Even if you have had a positive pregnancy test, it is important to have the test verified with an ultrasound exam.
About 25% of pregnancies end naturally in miscarriage. A good way to determine if you will miscarry is through an ultrasound exam.
Making a decision you feel good about includes getting all the information you need. If you are
considering abortion, we can provide you with a free limited obstetrical ultrasound (you will need an
ultrasound prior to an abortion) free of charge. And unlike some facilities, at HOPE we allow you to
see the results of the scan.
The ultrasound can help answer the following questions:
- Is the pregnancy located where it should be (in the uterus and not the tube)?
- Approximately how far along are you?
- Do we see what we would expect to see in a healthy early pregnancy since the miscarriage rate in
early pregnancy is about 1 in 4?
- Is there fetal cardiac activity?
If the pregnancy is not progressing normally, it will likely end naturally in miscarriage. In these cases,
you may not need to experience the pain and cost of an abortion. A good way to determine this
likelihood is via ultrasound.
