The topic is explained by the obstetrician-gynecologist of the Maternity Clinic of MC Erebouni, Anna Aghazaryan.
Your first ultrasound is preferably carried out around 6 to 8 weeks of pregnancy. At this period the confirmation of pregnancy, intrauterine or ectopic, dating of gestation, development of the foetus or growth retardation, fetal heartbeat, singleton or multiple pregnancy is assessed.
Additionally, it is very important that the ultrasound examination be performed intravaginally. This method should not be avoided, as this is the only way to diagnose a number of problems.
