If your in-clinic pregnancy test is positive, the staff and nurses at Pregnancy Options will help you determine if and when a follow-up Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound is required.
What is an Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound?
An Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of your uterus. This is done through a wand that is placed on your abdomen that will project images of your pregnancy onto a tv screen as the wand is moved across the outside of your abdomen. The Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound technician will use a lubricating gel on your abdomen to not only help the wand move smoothly over your abdomen and improve the effectiveness of the Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound images.
Why do I need an Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound?
These images will provide valuable information about your pregnancy. For example, an Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound will be able to more accurately determine how far along you are in your pregnancy. You deserve to have all the facts and know all your options. The Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound will also determine the location of your pregnancy. In rare cases a fertilized egg attaches to the fallopian tube instead of the uterus, this is called an ectopic pregnancy and requires immediate medical attention to avoid serious health complications.
