Pregnancy and STI Testing

Luton Sexual Health does not provide pregnancy testing as standard.

Pregnancy testing is only offered in addition to STI testing or if required prior to accessing different forms of contraception. We can support you with pregnancy choices, our services are confidential and professional.

Free pregnancy testing is available from NHS walk-in centres and your GP.

You can also buy pregnancy testing kits from pharmacies and supermarkets.

We can provide pregnancy testing in addition to STI screening or if required when accessing contraception.

Most urine sample pregnancy tests can be carried out from the day your period was expected to start, or even sooner with some testing kits.


If your pregnancy test is positive, you have options. You could choose to continue with the pregnancy and either keep the baby or have the baby adopted or end the pregnancy by having an abortion.

If you are unsure what to do, support is available. You can talk to one of our specialist staff at Luton Sexual Health; we provide non-judgemental support and can help you explore which option feels right for you. Call Reception on 01582 497070 to book a telephone appointment.

Continue with pregnancy

If you’re pregnant and want to continue with the pregnancy, you should see your doctor as soon as possible to book in with the midwife and to talk about looking after your health during your pregnancy.


If you do not want to have a termination, but you also don’t want to bring up the baby yourself, adoption might be an option for you.

Termination of pregnancy (also known as abortion)

If you would like to terminate your pregnancy you can call BPAS on 03457 30 40 30 and book an appointment for yourself. No referral is needed.

Alternatively you can make an appointment with either your GP or Luton Sexual Health who will be able to facilitate an appointment for you to attend this service.
