Pregnancy Choices

If you think you might be pregnant do a pregnancy test as soon as possible. The result is accurate if the test was done 3 weeks after you last had unprotected sex. If you do a test earlier than this it may not be accurate.

You can buy pregnancy tests from supermarkets and pharmacies. We also offer free pregnancy testing at our sexual health service. Phone us on 01159 627 627 (between  08:30-19:00 Monday - Thursday, 08:00-17:00 Friday, 09:30-14:00 Saturday) or book online[hyperlink to online booking].
