Pregnancies of Unknown Location with Dr. Jillian Claire

Most times, someone misses a period, takes a home pregnancy test, and calls their doctor because it came back positive.  The doctor says, come see me in six weeks–because they won’t be able to see anything on an ultrasound until then anyway. But other times–like if you’re visiting the emergency room–a doctor will order a pregnancy test much earlier than that, and the test comes back positive well before it’d be visible on ultrasound.  In that case, it’s a PUL–a pregnancy of unknown location.  The hunt is on!  Find out more about why OBs pay close attention to this finding on today’s show.
