When you have a positive pregnancy test at Sira, this is an indication that you are pregnant. To confirm that your pregnancy is a viable pregnancy, we offer a free limited obstetrical (OB) ultrasound with one of our medical personnel.
There are three things the limited ultrasound will be used to determine:
- First, we want to confirm that you are indeed pregnant. While pregnancy tests are very reliable, there are other factors that can affect the results of the test.
- Second, we will confirm that your pregnancy is viable by ruling out an ectopic pregnancy, which requires immediate medical attention, and that there is cardiac activity.
- Finally, we will also determine your due date.
We will not determine gender.
Getting a lab quality pregnancy test and a limited obstetrical ultrasound are the first steps to take when you believe you are pregnant. To help you make informed choices for your health, Sira offers both services at no cost to you.
