According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), an estimated 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will naturally end in a miscarriage. In our clinic specifically, we see that approximately 1 in every 4 pregnancy ultrasounds are non-viable pregnancies.
Most women are shocked when they find this out because they have taken several at-home pregnancy tests and all have come back positive. However, the only way to medically confirm a viable pregnancy is by performing an ultrasound scan. The first step after you confirm a positive in-home pregnancy test, should be to confirm it with an ultrasound scan.
