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 10-15% of all known pregnancies result in miscarriage according to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
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.
At Women’s Care Center limited ultrasounds are provided under the direction and supervision of a licensed physician to confirm pregnancy. To schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test and ultrasound, call 304-485-7113.
