A full detailed report will be provided explaining the scan results.You may be advised to have a further scan to enable a diagnosis to be made in approximately 1-2 weeks, you may wish to return to Premier Scans for this however the early pregnancy scan fee applies (£60) or you may wish to discuss the scan findings with your GP/midwife.If an abnormality is detected or suspected on your scan the Sonographer will discuss this with you.Generally the reasons for having an Early Pregnancy Scan are to: Early pregnancy scans are normally performed trans-abdominally (through your tummy) however, an internal scan may be required at earlier gestations i.e.6-7 weeks or if your womb tilts backwards (retroverted).
These dates are calculated from the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP), not the day of conception.
Before 5 weeks it is not possible to see any signs of a pregnancy with current ultrasound technology.
Waiting a few weeks will allow you to see more, and if all looks good at 8 weeks you will be reassured to know the chance of miscarriage is very low.
Early Pregnancy Scans are not routinely offered on the NHS but you may have one privately without affecting your NHS entitlement.
Sometimes it is requested by a doctor or midwife to confirm that your pregnancy is healthy (in this case your scan is often called a viability scan) and to calculate the date when your baby is due (usually referred to as a dating scan).
