Can a pelvic ultrasound detect pregnancy?

In brief: Yes

Depends on how far along you are, may not detect it if you are very early.
41/2 to 5 weeks is typically when it is detected, but as this time frame is very early, viability may not be determined even though pregnancy is detected. In that case, a follow up ultrasound is usually done in 7-10 days.
