An Important Step In Discovering Your Options
Know For Sure With An Ultrasound
Getting an ultrasound is the most important next step you can take if you have a positive pregnancy test. An ultrasound will help you know for sure if you’re really pregnant and how many weeks you’ve been pregnant.
What About Natural Miscarriages?
If your pregnancy is not viable (healthy), it will end naturally in a miscarriage. Medical research has determined that 8 to 20% of known pregnancies end in early miscarriage.1 An ultrasound will help you know for sure if your pregnancy is viable.
Do I Have An Ectopic Pregnancy?
Know for sure if your pregnancy is properly positioned in the uterus with an ultrasound. Medical research shows that 2% of all pregnancies are ectopic, which means that the embryo has implanted in the fallopian tubes outside of the uterus.2 This is a life-threatening condition and requires immediate medical attention.

Ultrasounds Are Required By Law
In the state of Texas, an ultrasound is required by law before getting an abortion—whether it is a medical or surgical abortion. We can explain to you the requirements of the new law and what it means to you if you are planning to visit an abortion clinic in Houston.
How Far Along Am I?
If you’re wondering when you might have gotten pregnant or can’t remember when your last period was or perhaps your periods are not regular, an ultrasound will give an accurate measurement of the pregnancy. If you’re considering an abortion, you will need to know how many weeks pregnant you are. This information determines what abortion methods are available to you.
