Verifying the results of a pregnancy test is essential. Although your period may be late and your test is positive, there is a possibility you will miscarry. Experts say up to 26% (or more) of pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. It’s possible to get a positive pregnancy test result days or weeks after a miscarriage.

Only limited obstetric ultrasound can determine if your pregnancy is viable (developing), where it’s located, and how far along you are. Get a limited obstetric ultrasound before making any decision about your pregnancy.
