How Soon Can I Take a Pregnancy Test?

The best time to get the most accurate pregnancy results is one week after your first missed period. A pregnancy test detects the amount of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your urine. Most at-home pregnancy tests are accurate when done correctly and at the right time. Follow-up with a lab-quality pregnancy test to be sure.

What Is an Ultrasound?

A sonogram, also known as a fetal ultrasound is an imaging technique that uses sound waves to produce images of a pregnancy in the uterus. It’s a painless and simple process of pregnancy confirmation.

An ultrasound detects three important details about your pregnancy:

  1. If you have a viable pregnancy (with a fetal heartbeat)
  2. How far along you are (gestational age)
  3. Determine’s the pregnancy’s location (if it’s within the uterus)

Why Do I Need an Ultrasound Before Abortion?

No matter what pregnancy decision you decide on, you will still need an ultrasound to move forward. There are multiple abortion procedures that are performed based on how far along you are in your pregnancy.

The FDA shares that the medication abortion method can only be used 10 weeks or less since your last menstrual period began. If you are farther along, a surgical abortion would be your only abortion option. An ultrasound can determine the gestational age of the pregnancy.

What Is an Ectopic Pregnancy?

An ectopic pregnancy is when a pregnancy is developed outside of the uterus and can be life-threatening. Some warning signs of this type of pregnancy are light vaginal bleeding and pelvic pain. An ultrasound is the only way to confirm if you have any pregnancy complications like ectopic pregnancy. Get the clarity you need today.
