Suddenly finding out that you’re pregnant can feel like a really big deal. But before you panic, it’s best to find out if you are definitely pregnant.
There are a couple of ways to determine if you are pregnant. You could use a home pregnancy test which you can buy from a chemist or supermarket, but if the instructions aren’t followed correctly, the results won’t be accurate.
If you want to be 100% certain that you are pregnant, it’s best to visit a doctor. Your doctor will conduct a blood or urine test that can accurately determine whether you are pregnant or not.
If you are unsure about going to your family doctor or you don’t have one, read ‘Going to the doctor on your own’. It has tips on finding a doctor, payment options and your rights. You can also visit your local family planning clinic.
Remember – Whatever choice you make, it’s up to you.
