Is it safe to have an Ultrasound done once in a month during pregnancy?
I am 3 months prego and my gynac recommends that I should have an Ultrasound done once in every 4 weeks. Though she claims it is not necessary, she say that is recommended. Is it safe enough for the baby?
More Answers to "Is it safe to have an Ultrasound done once in a month during pregnancy?"IT WONT harm BABY. Ultrasound uses ultrasonic waves to look inside your womb. I wouldnt argue with doctor about this. in japan it is standard practice for pregnant women to have an ultrasound once a month. personally i do not see any additional benefit that a monthly ultrasound can provide, unless we are dealing with a high-risk pregnancy. i usually suggest one ultrasound during the 1st trimester to check on the dates and get diagnostic information pertinent to the 1st 3 months, and then schedule another at around 7 months, to check on the baby's position, gender, placenta, etc. If the pregnancy is proceeding normally those two ultrasound sessions should suffice.
The jury is still out on this one. Ob doctors use it frequently and there was some question in the past as to its safety for routine use in pregnancy. I think if it is not necessary I would play it safe. It is safe to have it , when i was pregnant i had ultraound almost every month and i enjoy watching how my baby has moving and everything and i was also sure that the baby was fine i mean fisically , Enjoy your pregnancy , its a wonderfull season fr you , Good Luck !
There is no harm in going for ultrasonography once a month. The ultrasound uses sound waves of the frequency range that are beyond human recognition an not any ionizing radiation. Actually the diagnostic process that can be harmful are the techniques that use ionizing radiations for e.g. x rays, CT scans. Among these CT scan emits the greatest amount of radiations in a single exposure. They are then followed by Dental Radiography and then general radiography. But let me tell you that even x-rays have certain bearable level. If taken with adequate protection with lead apron and thyroid collar it may not prove to be harmful. it is really safe.enjoy the sessions it's a wonderful experience.
