Positive Pregnancy Test
So you had a positive pregnancy test at home. The first step is to verify this positive pregnancy test at our medical clinic. The next step is to confirm your pregnancy is viable with an ultrasound by a medical professional. It is important to verify you have a viable intrauterine pregnancy regardless of your pregnancy decision. A viable pregnancy is one that is safely located in the uterus and is capable of developing under normal conditions. Approximately 30% of all pregnancies result in miscarriage.
At your visit, a limited OB ultrasound will be offered or scheduled:
• to confirm a viable pregnancy,
• identify the pregnancy is safely located in the uterus,
• and determine with more accuracy the weeks of pregnancy.
Women’s Care Center can offer a limited OB ultrasound to give you the important medical information you need. To schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test and ultrasound, call 304-485-7113. We offer a free confirmation limited OB ultrasound.
