Can You Get an Early Pregnancy Scan

Early Pregnancy Scans in Leicester’s Clinics is safe for pregnant women. You can choose to get the scan or your doctor may demand it. But how soon can it be? Well, that is the one-million dollar question which we have addressed in this post. Just read on and find out more.

While a bigger number of pregnant patients usually have their first pregnancy when their pregnancy is 12 weeks old, some of us may be asked to get an early pregnancy scan. You can also get an early pregnancy scan done privately at a clinic you trust like Window to the Womb Leicester. We took some time to ask mother on our official Facebook page whether they would get an early pregnancy scan privately and they said it is always the best option.

According to one of the midwives who is a staunch member of our Facebook community, your midwife or GP might demand an early pregnancy scan especially if you’ve:

• Experienced an ectopic pregnancy previously
• Experienced bleeding
• Had recurrent miscarriages
• Had any type of Fertility treatment

Early Scan

How early can you have an early pregnancy scan?

There is no specific answer to this question. It all depends on what type of pregnancy scan you would want to get. For example, you can have a pregnancy ultrasound scan performed when you are around 6 weeks pregnant. It will be difficult to scan and see anything earlier than 6 weeks. But if you get it earlier than this, then you will likely have to get another scan. We recommend that you wait until the 7th week of pregnancy before getting a scan. That way, we will certainly be able to clearly see the fetus’ heartbeat.

As one of our followers confirms, “I got a pregnancy scan 6 weeks after my periods and the scan showed a heartbeat. This was an internal scan. However, I think one should wait until 7 weeks”. Another mum on our Facebook community had this same experience. “I got 2 early pregnancy scans, one when I was 6 weeks and another at 8 weeks. The first scan did not show anything. The second one at 8 weeks clearly showed the heartbeat. So, if you can be patient, then you should leave it until you are 8 weeks”.

We do hope that this post helps you get the information you need concerning when is the earliest you can have a pregnancy scan. You can get Early Pregnancy Scans in Leicester’s Best Clinics online.
