Frequently Asked Questions
Our team is ready to help you.
Whatever your questions are, we are available to walk you through all of your options. Below are some common questions we receive.
When should I get an ultrasound?
If you have recently taken a pregnancy test and the results are positive, you may be eligible for an ultrasound. An ultrasound procedure can tell you some important information about your pregnancy and can help you in the decision-making process. Having an ultrasound performed will tell you how far along you are in your pregnancy, whether there is a fetal heartbeat and where the pregnancy is developing. All of this is important to know to help determine if you have a viable pregnancy.
How do I know if I'm pregnant?
If you have recently had unprotected sex, you may be wondering if you’re pregnant. While the only way to tell if you are really pregnant is to take a pregnancy test and have an ultrasound performed, there may be certain signs and symptoms that could indicate pregnancy. The most common sign is a missed period, however, you may also experience tender or swollen breasts, frequent urination, spotting or cramping, nausea or aversions to certain foods, darkening of the nipples and more. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, especially a missed period, you should contact us today for a free pregnancy test and subsequent ultrasound.
