Pregnancy Testing:

Do you think you might be pregnant?

Missed a period or had unprotected sex?

 

You need to know whether you are pregnant or not.

How can you find out?

 

You may be experiencing all sorts of symptoms that go with

pregnancy, but having a pregnancy test done is the best way of finding out if you are pregnant or not.

 

A pregnancy test detects the presence of a certain pregnancy hormone in your urine. It is quick and easy to do. Most pregnancy tests can detect a pregnancy from the first day of a missed period.

How do I get a pregnancy test?

 

If you want to do the test yourself, you can buy one from a chemist or supermarket and do it at home.

 

If you want someone to do it for you, you can:
