Pregnancy

Show_nhs_pregnant_woman_with_apple

A pregnancy can be the best or the worst thing to happen to you, depending on whether it is planned or not.

Confirming a pregnancy:

This is done by a urine pregnancy test which detects a hormone produced in pregnancy called human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG).

You can buy a kit to do the test at home, or it can be done for you by your GP, MESMAC in Hull and school nurses.

The test is best done on the first urine sample of the morning (as the concentration of hormone will be highest then) and usually will not read positive until you are 2 weeks pregnant. If there is any doubt about the result, repeat the test in a week. If there is still doubt due to symptoms or a urine test that is difficult to interpret, your GP or clinic may recommend a blood test. For further information see NHS Choices.

A wanted pregnancy:

You should book your first appointment for care as soon as you know you are pregnant. In Hull and the East Riding, you do this by contacting your GP. 

Not sure about being pregnant?

If the pregnancy is unplanned and you don’t know what to do, sometimes it helps to speak to someone independent, outside your family and friends.
