Pregnancy Testing

If you are pregnant and don't know what to do, we have a set of questions that might help you.

If you think you may be pregnant, the first thing to do is to find out whether you really are.

A pregnancy test is the most reliable way to confirm if you are pregnant. You will need to give a urine sample, which tests for the presence of a pregnancy hormone.

Your GP or family planning clinic may be able to offer you a free test or you can have a pregnancy test and consultation at bpas. The test takes approximately five minutes and, if you want it, bpas can also provide specialist counselling, help and advice - whatever the result.

Alternatively, you can buy a reliable pregnancy testing kit from any pharmacy. The kits available nowadays will give you an accurate result from the first day when your period was due. Many pharmacists also offer a pregnancy testing service.
