If your pregnancy test result from Your Options Mobile is positive, the next step is to have an ultrasound procedure. No matter what options you’re considering, an ultrasound is necessary because it will allow us to provide valuable information regarding your pregnancy and provide you with the information you need to make the best decision possible for you.
Ultrasound is a form of medical imaging that uses sound waves to produce a picture of what’s happening inside the body. It is completely safe and has been used for decades to capture imaging of the heart, brain, abdomen, and more.
For any number of reasons, as many as 1 in 4 pregnancies naturally end in miscarriage. An ultrasound will determine whether this has happened by looking for a fetal heartbeat. It will also show you how far along you are, which you need to know if you are considering abortion because the abortion procedures available to you are determined by the pregnancy’s gestational age. Finally, an ultrasound will show whether you have an ectopic pregnancy.
An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the egg implants itself somewhere other than the uterus, usually in one of the fallopian tubes. If left untreated, the fallopian tube can burst, causing serious health complications that can be fatal.
After an ultrasound procedure, once you are provided with the information you need, we will recommend you for options counseling. Options counseling is a space for you to process and think about the options you have.
All of our services are completely free and confidential. That means there’s no insurance necessary, and nobody will find out before you’re ready to tell them. Schedule an appointment at Your Options Mobile today for the care you deserve.
