Ultrasound at early pregnancy stages (before 11 weeks)

In early pregnancy stages ultrasound examination is usually carried out by means of transvaginal scan. At 6-10 weeks of pregnancy ultrasound examination is able to show whether the pregnancy progresses normally (is the fetal heartbeats normal), or exclude ectopic pregnancy and determine the number of fetuses.

This examine is recommended to all women who have blood discharge in current pregnancy or had abortion, missed miscarriage or ectopic pregnancies previously.
