Pregnant? We offer dating ultrasounds to help you figure out how far along you are in your pregnancy.
Why would I need a dating ultrasound?
A dating ultrasound is performed to estimate how many weeks pregnant you are. The earlier the ultrasound is performed, the more accurate it will be at estimating the exact date. Dating ultrasounds can also help assess the presence of a heartbeat and the location of the pregnancy in the uterus to rule out an ectopic pregnancy.
A dating ultrasound is not a comprehensive gynecological or obstetrical scan.
A dating ultrasound is not an initiation into prenatal or abortion care.
If you are continuing the pregnancy, it is important to have a more comprehensive ultrasound with your prenatal provider.
If you are planning to end the pregnancy, it’s important to follow up with an abortion provider. We can’t provide abortion in Texas, but we can connect you to out-of-state abortion providers and to resources for gas, flights, travel, meal, and childcare expenses.
