I think I might be pregnant

If you have done a pregnancy test and it is positive this means you are pregnant. All tests, including tests you do yourself, are very reliable.

If you have not done a test yet but think you might be pregnant you can attend our Young Persons Q&W8 to do a test with us. You can also buy a home test, remember to look for one with a CE kite mark.

It's normal to feel a range of different emotions when you find out you are pregnant. For some it can be very difficult working out what to do, but there is support available to help you think through all your options.

If you want to continue the pregnancy you need to arrange to see your GP who can refer you to the community midwife team for your ante-natal care. Your GP can also be a good person to talk through your options with if you are not sure what to do. Click here for health advice on what to do if you are pregnant.

If you are undecided or if you want to arrange a termination then you need to contact the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) or Marie Stopes. They will talk through all your options with you and they can arrange for you to see a counsellor if you are still unsure about what to do. If you are sure that you want a termination they will arrange an appointment for you. Please click here for the BPAS website and here for the Marie Stopes website. Termination is free for most people. 

If you are under 18 and need help with a test, talking to your parents or accessing BPAS please call us and ask to speak to a nurse. 01904 721111.
