Ultrasounds at The Women’s Center Illiana

Even if your pregnancy is confirmed, it’s possible it may not be a viable pregnancy or, in other words, a healthy and progressing pregnancy. Roughly 10 – 25% of pregnancies do not continue to full term, resulting in miscarriage. About 80% of miscarriages occur in the first 3 months of pregnancy. Before making your next steps, it’s important to know if your pregnancy is viable or if other medical care may be needed. 

While you may also use an app to track your menstrual cycle, figuring out exactly how many weeks pregnant you are can be tricky. An ultrasound uses sound wave technology to examine the size of a fetus which then provides the information needed.

Taking abortion pills without an ultrasound is extremely risky. Your pregnancy may be farther along than 10 weeks, which could lead to excessive bleeding or complications that require emergency surgery.

Our nurse sonographers can help you determine your pregnancy’s location (if it’s correctly located in the uterus or if ectopic pregnancy may be a concern), the gestational age (how far along you are, which may determine the options available to you), and viability (if miscarriage may be a concern for you). 

The Women’s Center Illiana’s licensed medical staff is here to help answer your questions. Schedule a no cost, confidential ultrasound with The Women’s Center Illiana today.
