You can confirm your pregnancy with a pregnancy test at the Limerick Family Planning Clinic. Pregnancy tests work by detecting pregnancy hormones in your urine.
For the most reliable results, test one week or more after you miss a period. Results are fairly accurate, but if you have a negative test result and are still experiencing pregnancy symptoms (see signs below), you may need to take a second test or talk to your GP or Limerick Family Planning Clinic.
If your pregnancy test is positive – the family planning nurse will give you advice regarding the expected date of delivery and options.
If you think you might be pregnant, have a test – the sooner you confirm your pregnancy, the sooner you can get the medical care and the emotional support you need.
All these signs can have causes other than pregnancy, so you will need to do a pregnancy test to be sure.
