The Pregnancy Test Was Positive. Now What?
A positive pregnancy test doesn’t necessarily mean you’re positively pregnant. Although pregnancy tests are relatively accurate, one study suggests up to 5% can indicate you aren’t pregnant when you are.
Another study estimates that 26% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. Before you can take your next step, you need an ultrasound. We offer referrals for a free, local ultrasound scan.
What More Do I Need To Know About My Pregnancy?
There are three fundamental questions an ultrasound can answer.
1. Is My Pregnancy Viable?
An ultrasound detects if your pregnancy is growing with a heartbeat (viable). If a heartbeat isn’t found, it’s too early in your pregnancy, or you may have miscarried.
2. How Far Along Am I?
The gestational age refers to the number of weeks you have been pregnant. If you’re considering abortion, the abortion pill is only FDA-approved for women who’ve been pregnant for ten weeks or less. Are you positive you know how long you’ve been pregnant? If not, you’ll want an ultrasound.
3. Where Is My Pregnancy Located?
Although rare, some women experience an ectopic pregnancy. This pregnancy develops outside the uterus, usually within the Fallopian tubes. An ectopic pregnancy can be very dangerous, even life-threatening. If discovered, see your healthcare provider immediately.
