Firstly do not panic, there may be other reasons apart from pregnancy why you are late with a period. A previously used contraceptive method may make your period late or recent use of oral emergency contraception.  Click here for more information about emergency contraception.

If you are pregnant, an early pregnancy test will give you extra time to consider your options.

Pregnancy tests are available to buy from most pharmacies and large supermarkets but can also be obtained free at;

  • Some pharmacies if under the age of 19 years old.

  • Lincolnshire Integrated Sexual Health (LISH) Clinics.

  • GP.
