At what terms can pregnancy be determined by ultrasound?
Since 3rd week of menstruation delay, it is possible to confirm pregnancy by ultrasound. It is usually the 5-6th week of pregnancy. Still, sometimes it is only visible a week later, as not all women have ovulation at the same day of the cycle.
