It is possible to perform an ultrasound scan starting from week seven to eight in pregnancy. With this early viability scan we will look at a number of things, namely: if you are indeed pregnant, whether the embryo is located and growing inside of the uterus and if there is a heartbeat. An estimation of the number of weeks of pregnancy will be made, but the exact gestational age will still be unclear: the embryo is still too small to determine the exact age. The viability scan is at your own request. The price of the scan is €45.00. Whenever there is a medical indication, the scan is covered by the insurance.
Please keep in mind that an ultrasound this early in pregnancy is not always possible via abdominal ultrasound. Sometimes it will be necessary to perform a vaginal ultrasound.
