The NHS contains lots of information to help you know what to expect during pregnancy. You should contact a mid-wife or your GP if you believe you are pregnant to ensure you get the professional support you need. www.nhs.uk/Conditions/pregnancy-and-baby/pages/pregnancy-and-baby-care.aspx
In Westminster there are two sexual health services for young people.
They both provide confidential advice on sexual health for people aged 19 and under. Services you can access include free condoms and other contraception, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) emergency contraception, pregnancy testing, safer sex and sexuality information.
Both services are drop ins - so you don't need an appointment.
- Cont@ct at 56 Dean Street
- Cont@ct Plus at Bessborough
Having an unintended pregnancy can be a frightening time, but there is support available. It is important to ensure you have an accurate pregnancy test- you can get this done through your GP, Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinics (formerly Family Planning Clinics), Integrated Sexual Health Clinics (formerly GUM Clinics) or some chemists.
