Why do I need an ultrasound if I’m thinking of aborting?

Nurse at Women's Choice in Fort Worth, TX Checking Woman Pregnancy During Ultrasound Examination

You took a pregnancy test, and it read positive. You’re leaning towards abortion because there might be a lot going on in your life. Maybe you have just moved, or you don’t feel, health-wise, you can go through with the pregnancy. Or, perhaps, you and the guy you got pregnant with are not even a thing. There numerous reasons you may are looking at different options while trying to figure out what is BEST for you and your future. We understand. We help women just like you every single day. See why an ultrasound should be your first step in your decision process.

Here a few suggestions we have for you and women in your shoes:

A Lab Quality Pregnancy Test

We offer these pregnancy test so that you can know with great confidence if you’re pregnant. This test is the highest quality pregnancy tests available.

A Limited Ultrasound

Maybe you’re thinking, I’m going to terminate this pregnancy anyway, why do I need an ultrasound? Great question! Because the ultrasound will help our medical staff know how far along you are in your pregnancy. We cannot tell you how many girls think they’re only a few weeks along when in reality, they’re farther than they thought or vice versa. The other thing our medical staff looks for is if the pregnancy is progressing normally. Because if it is not, you may be at risk for an Ectopic Pregnancy or miscarrying. An Ectopic Pregnancy is a pregnancy where the fertilized egg is planted somewhere outside of the uterus. According to the Mayo Clinic, an ectopic pregnancy can’t proceed normally. The fertilized egg can’t survive, and the growing tissue may cause life-threatening bleeding if left untreated. This is why we at Women’s Choice Resource Center strongly encourage getting an ultrasound.


The other reason we recommend an ultrasound is because, according to March of Dimes, as many as half of all pregnancies may end in miscarriage. If your body terminates the pregnancy on its own, you will not need to get an abortion. You could potentially save yourself hundreds of dollars by getting an ultrasound done.
