pregnancy test

For free pregnancy testing you can go to pharmacies, your doctor or visit the daily drop-in at:
Sexual Health D & G, Nithbank, Dumfries DG1 2SD.

To find out if you are pregnant, a pregnancy test needs to be carried out. This is done with a kit that can test the presence of a hormone that is found in a woman's urine when a fertilised egg implants in the womb.

This test can be carried out accurately, three weeks after unprotected sexual intercourse or if you have missed a period and think you may be pregnant.
