Think you may be pregnant?

If you need advice or support you can see your GP or read the information below to find out more.

The sooner you know whether you are pregnant or not, the sooner you will be able to make choices about your pregnancy. There is plenty of support available to help you through whatever you decide to do.

A pregnancy test can be done from the first day your period was due. It is best to wait until then as this is when the pregnancy hormone will be high enough to be detected on the test. If you do it before, there is a chance you could get an incorrect negative result. If you think you might be pregnant, you can buy a test or you can ask to be tested at one of our contraception clinics.

Your options

If you have had a test and established that you’re pregnant you have the following options:

Continue with the pregnancy and become a parent

It is important to book in your antenatal care quickly by visiting your GP or registering with a hospital. The Princess Royal University Hospital has more information about maternity services at the hospital.

The NHS website has information on pregnancy and caring for a baby

Continue with the pregnancy and arrange adoption or fostering

The Bromley Council website has more information about fostering and adoption. 

Have an abortion

 For information about where to get support when considering abortion, visit the NHS website
