Pre-Termination Consult2
Here is what you can expect when you visit our medical clinic for pregnancy services:

1. You will be asked for an ID and to complete standard paperwork so we can learn more about your health.
2. A nurse will talk with you about your overall health and pregnancy related concerns.
3. Next, we will conduct a pregnancy test. A lab-quality pregnancy urine test detects the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). HCG is a hormone that is produced by the placenta and is an excellent marker for indicating pregnancy. At this appointment, the nurse will determine when you could have an ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy.
4. Finally, a limited obstetrical ultrasound will be offered or scheduled for you.

During the ultrasound, the nurse will:

• confirm the pregnancy is viable (safely located in the uterus and capable of developing under normal conditions)
• obtain certain measurements, including the length of fetus and fetal heart activity
• determine the gestational (age) of the pregnancy

Consider these final items:

• It is important to confirm you have a viable intrauterine pregnancy regardless of your pregnancy decision.
• Approximately 10-15% of all known pregnancies result in miscarriage, according to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
• When a pregnancy is located anywhere outside the uterus, it is known as an ectopic or tubal pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy can be extremely dangerous for a woman. It occurs when a pregnancy gets started in the abdominal cavity outside of the uterus. An ectopic pregnancy cannot survive.
