Now that you know you are pregnant, what’s next? It’s time to schedule an early OB ultrasound.
For a lot of women, understanding about sex and pregnancy comes from tv, classes at school, and vague conversations from peers or older siblings. As a result, a lot of what we know is a collection of half-truths, myths, and misconceptions. This can lead to not properly understanding how reproduction works or even how STIs can be transmitted.
An early obstetric (OB) ultrasound can give women and their healthcare providers useful information about their pregnancy. Do I have a viable pregnancy? How far along am I really? Is my pregnancy in the correct location? These are three important questions in early pregnancy that only ultrasound can accurately answer.
