Pregnancy Testing

get a FREE Pregnancy Test at a ASC Clinic

When you can do a pregnancy test?

You can do most pregnancy tests on a sample of urine from the first day of a missed period. If you're pregnant, this is about two weeks after conception. You can do a pregnancy test on urine collected at any time of the day. It doesn't have to be in the morning.

Where can you get a pregnancy test?

If you are 25 or under you can get a free pregnancy test from an ASC chemist. Free pregnancy tests are available from the Integrated Sexual Health Service whatever your age. Both an ASC chemist and the Integrated Sexual Health Service can give you advice on your choices if you are pregnant.

You can also buy do-it-yourself pregnancy testing kits from chemists and some shops.  They can give a quick result, and you can do the test in private. A range of tests is available. The way they work varies, so check the instructions first.   They cannot give you advice on your choices if you are pregnant.

How does a pregnancy test work?

All pregnancy tests detect the hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) which starts to be produced around six days after fertilisation.


PREGNANCY TEST RESULTS

A positive test result is almost certainly correct. A negative result is less reliable. If you get a negative result and still think that you're pregnant, wait a week and try again, or see a GP.
