How does pregnancy testing work?

A pregnancy test works by detecting hormones present in a woman’s pee that are released into the body soon after a fertilized egg starts to grow in the womb. Clever eh?

You can collect the urine at any time of the day using a clean, soap-free container.

Where can I get a pregnancy test?

Free tests are available from your GP or sexual health service. Some pharmacies will do a test for you in-store, although you usually have to pay. You can also buy home testing kits from supermarkets, pharmacies or from online stores.

What do the test results mean?

Home pregnancy testing is reliable as long as it is done correctly. A positive result almost certainly means you are pregnant. Negative results are not so reliable – you could still be pregnant. You may get a negative result if:

Types of Abortion: Medical and Surgical

What is the difference between a medical and a surgical abortion?

Considering abortion

One in three women in the UK will have an abortion by the time they’re 45.

Some women are very clear about wanting to have one. Others will want to talk it through in detail to help them arrive at their decision.

It can help to seek advice from trusted, specialist organizations. If you don’t feel able to talk to friends or family, you can speak to one of our counselors or to your GP. Any conversation you have with us will be confidential.
