What You Should Know

The Importance Of Ultrasound

An ultrasound will verify the gestational age of the fetus. This is especially helpful if you have irregular periods, have frequent spotting, or are not sure when you had your last period.

Ultrasound also determines the viability of the pregnancy.  This is important since 20% – 25% of first trimester pregnancies end in miscarriage. Should the ultrasound reveal that the fetus is growing outside of the uterus (known as an ectopic pregnancy), you will be given instructions for immediate medical attention, as this condition can be life-threatening.

If You Have An STD/STI

You may have an STD or STI (sexually transmitted disease or infection) even if you are not experiencing any symptoms.

  • undiagnosed, untreated STD/STIs can cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, an infection of the uterus, that can affect your long-term health and future pregnancies.
  • Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic offers free referrals for STD/STI testing & treatment
