How An Ultrasound Works
A fetal ultrasound is used to confirm important details about your pregnancy, including the health of your pregnancy. Without this step, you can’t know what’s next. An ultrasound reveals two important things:
- If you have a viable pregnancy (with a heartbeat)
- The gestational age (how far along you are)
The ultrasound procedure involves using high-frequency sound waves to reveal the contents inside the uterus. An ultrasound can also reveal the possibility of any minor or major complications. A gel-like substance is used on your abdomen and then a device called a transducer is used to reveal images on a screen.

Why do I Need One?
The main reason you need an ultrasound is to confirm you have a viable and healthy pregnancy. Many women experience things like miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies which eliminate them from the option of abortion. In order to move forward with any pregnancy decision, you will need to know how far along you are as well. Don’t worry, it’s a simple and quick process.
