Our pre-abortion screenings and viability ultrasounds help New York City women make informed choices about their pregnancies.
Many abortion clinics will not offer free ultrasounds before recommending an abortion.
We offer viability ultrasounds as part of our pre-abortion screenings to help women who want to avoid the hassle and cost of getting an abortion.
Our trained ultrasound technicians will perform a Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound to confirm you are pregnant, find the location of your pregnancy, detect if there is a fetal heartbeat, identify whether you are likely to miscarry, and determine the approximate fetal age and due date.
There is no reason to endure the stress and pay the costs of an abortion if you might not even need one!
It can also be extremely dangerous to move forward with an abortion without first receiving an ultrasound. In rare cases, pregnancy can be located outside of the uterus, in/on the fallopian tube, ovary, cervix, or abdominal cavity. These are known as Ectopic Pregnancies and they CANNOT be managed with abortion pills. If left untreated, Ectopic Pregnancies can require emergency surgery and cause lasting pain, infertility, and even death.
Unfortunately, there have been cases where women took abortion pills without first receiving an ultrasound and didn't realize they had an Ectopic Pregnancy until they had to be rushed to the hospital. This happens because the side effects of abortion pills (severe abdominal bleeding, nausea, persistent vaginal bleeding) are similar to the symptoms of an Ectopic Pregnancy. It is common for women (and even their doctors) to ignore the signs of an Ectopic Pregnancy by assuming that the side effects they're experiencing are just from taking the abortion pill.
This shouldn't happen to anyone! If you are considering abortion, please schedule an appointment at one of our clinics to confirm that you do not have an Ectopic Pregnancy
