Metro Women’s Care offers first-trimester ultrasound exams to confirm and date your pregnancy.
Medical Confirmation through Ultrasound Exams
The main purpose of an ultrasound exam at Metro Women’s Care is to confirm the presence of a viable pregnancy (in the uterus). An ultrasound will measure how many weeks pregnant you are which is important to know before considering an abortion.
Know You’re Pregnant Before Scheduling an Abortion
Pregnancy may not be in your plans, but it’s important to know that up to 20% of early pregnancies can end in a natural miscarriage. Before you plan an abortion, schedule an appointment for an ultrasound to confirm that your pregnancy is viable.
What to Expect during Your Ultrasound Exam
Our ultrasound exams are provided free of charge and are completely confidential. All scans are performed by nurses or sonographers certified in limited obstetric ultrasound and are read by a licensed physician.
Performing ultrasound scans during pregnancy is a very safe and painless procedure. We do not use ultrasound to determine sex, and some restrictions may apply.
