Life Options offer free limited ultrasounds to confirm intrauterine pregnancy with fetal heart rate and pregnancy dating. Exam is offered up to 20 weeks.
A positive pregnancy test (including a home test) is an indication of pregnancy, but not a confirmation. The test result should be confirmed by an OB Ultrasound exam.
A limited OB Ultrasound can determine the following:
- If your pregnancy is a potentially life-threatening tubal pregnancy.
- The approximate age of your pregnancy.
- If the fetus has a heartbeat.
- How developed the fetus is.
Should I Have An Ultrasound Before Having An Abortion?
If you are considering abortion, an ultrasound is recommended before going to an abortion clinic or taking RU486 (the Abortion Pill). An ultrasound may help you determine how many weeks pregnant you are, which determines the types of abortion procedures available to you. An ultrasound also tells you if the pregnancy is viable (able to survive). Make an appointment with a medical professional at Life Options to request a free ultrasound and to learn more about abortion.

Frequently Asked Questions:
A sonogram scan is a noninvasive procedure that uses sound waves to determine information about your pregnancy. If you’re wondering when you might have gotten pregnant or can’t remember when your last period was, an ultrasound may give you some indication. An ultrasound will also tell you if your pregnancy is viable (able to survive) and where your pregnancy is located. This information may determine what options are available to you.
Statistics show that natural miscarriages occur in approximately 10% to 25% of all pregnancies and most occur in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. An ultrasound will help determine if your pregnancy is viable (able to survive) or at risk for a natural miscarriage.
Our sonogram scan will determine where your pregnancy is located and if your pregnancy is safe. Normally a pregnancy is located in the uterus, but sometimes a pregnancy can implant itself outside of the uterus (meaning it is an ectopic pregnancy), which can be a life-threatening situation for you and the pregnancy wouldn’t be considered viable (able to survive).
If you’re concerned about being pregnant or considering abortion, it’s important to know how many weeks pregnant you are. Ovulation usually occurs in the middle of a 28 day cycle – or about 14 days after the first day of your last period. However, ovulation can vary, especially if you have irregular periods. An ultrasound may help you determine how far along you are.
