Pregnancy Test

Pregnancy Test

Although you might be nervous, it is important to have a pregnancy test if you've had unprotected sex and missed out on emergency contraception.  This will give you more time to think about what you want to do.  Pregnancy tests are very reliable and can be done three weeks after unprotected sex, or on the first day of a missed period. Pregnancy tests are free and readily available. 

You can also buy home testing kits at your local chemist or supermarket. However, If you decide to take the test at home you might want to have someone with you for support. Once you know the result, you can still talk to someone for support and advice on the choices available to you.
