Pregnancy Dating by Ultrasound


After a positive pregnancy test, an ultrasound may be an important next step to determine whether your pregnancy is intrauterine [1] and viable [2], and to show how far along you are. Blue Ridge Women’s Center can provide limited obstetrical ultrasound for these purposes—at no cost to you—if you have already had a positive pregnancy test at the Center and it has been at least 8 weeks since the first day of your last menstrual cycle.

An ultrasound appointment can be booked for a second visit, once you’ve had a positive pregnancy test at our medical facility. If a full diagnostic ultrasound would be more appropriate for your situation, because you’re further along in your pregnancy or experiencing medical problems, our staff will be happy to refer you to an OB-GYN who can assist.

Do you need an ultrasound appointment? Book an initial appointment for your pregnancy test first; during that visit we’ll schedule your ultrasound appointment based on the pregnancy test results.

Questions or additional comments:

[1] About 2% of pregnancies implant in the fallopian tubes, where the embryo cannot safely continue to develop and the mother’s life may be threatened without medical intervention. (If you have questions about an Ectopic Pregnancy, feel free to ask us here or download Frequently Asked Questions on Ectopic Pregnancy.)

[2] Around 15-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, usually during the first trimester. An ultrasound may detect fetal demise or other signs that your pregnancy is not progressing normally. (If you have questions about miscarriages, feel free to ask us here or download Frequently Asked Questions on Miscarriages.)
