Anyone planning a pregnancy termination must obtain an ultrasound to estimate the gestation prior to the procedure. It is extremely important to know the location of the conception first and foremost. Second, we must know how far along is the pregnancy. Knowing the size of the gestation allows for proper planning during the procedure. The surgical procedure is very different as the pregnancy gets larger. Also, it may be the case that the fetus is too far advanced in its development in order to safely abort it. Furthermore, for those contemplating taking the abortion pill, there is a limit as to the size and time. It can only be taken by 9 weeks, and we must know exactly how far it is advanced prior to taking this medication.
The ultrasound exam is included with the global fee for our abortion services. Our clinic is close to Riverside and Corona.
