If you are planning to get pregnant you should consider a number of lifestyle and health issues before you stop using contraception. For more information about planning a pregnancy take a look at www.sexualhealthscotland.co.uk/pregnancy/getting-pregnant
where you can find all kinds of information about things to consider before you get pregnant and what to do if you discover you are.
If you think you might be pregnant then you should get this confirmed with a test. You can buy one yourself at a pharmacy or shop, ask your GP to do one, or come to any sexual and reproductive health clinic where we will do the test for you. After that you will need to see your GP or midwife who will arrange care for you. We do not provide antenatal care in our clinics. To find out about care during pregnancy go to www.readysteadybaby.org.uk
There are specialist clinics for pregnant women who may need earlier or more intensive support and your GP will arrange this for you once they know more about you.
If you have worries or questions about early pregnancy (your first 12 weeks) you can follow this link to the Early Pregnancy Information Centre www.earlypregnancy.org.uk.
