If you think you might be pregnant or have tested positive with a self-administered pregnancy test, Avail is here to help.
We offer referrals to an on-site licensed medical center with board-certified doctors for a free or low-cost ultrasound, if you qualify. Ultrasound exams can confirm a pregnancy, measure the viability, and tell you how far along you are. They also can be a useful tool in your decision-making process, and results are usually available the same day.
An ultrasound exam uses high frequency sound waves to capture images inside your body and is generally performed at seven to eight weeks of pregnancy. Although hCG tests are highly accurate in determining if you are pregnant, an ultrasound exam can do the following:
- confirm a viable pregnancy
- identify if your pregnancy is located in your uterus (not ectopic); and
- give you a more accurate idea of how far along you are in your pregnancy
If the results show that your pregnancy is viable, your Avail client advocate will offer you a decision-making tool and information to help you sort through the benefits and risks of each option so you can be empowered to make the best decision for you.
