Pregnancy Tests FAQ

How accurate is the test?
Our tests are purchased in Hamilton, ON from a medical laboratory. They are 99% accurate when administered 7 to 10 days after possible conception.

Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn’t start?
Yes, you may reschedule for another test.

Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?
If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, CPRC can provide you referrals.

What Now?

The test is positive… breathe… you are not alone.

It’s important that you don’t rush into anything, but take time to make an educated decision.

You have choices. Some choices you might feel don’t apply to you, but you need to look at the long-term
effects of your choice. Rushed decisions can lead to deep regret later on.

The CPRC is here to help you sort through your thoughts and feelings.

For Him

If you have sex there is always the possibility a pregnancy may occur.  If you think your girlfriend or partner may be pregnant, we are here to help.

Remember: Stay Calm. She needs your support now more than ever. She may be pregnant, but both of you are affected by a possible positive test result. Regardless of your relationship in the future you will have to work this out together.

Talk about it. Express yourself honestly.  It’s normal to have feelings of anger, frustration and fear, but make sure she knows she is not alone.

The test result is positive…

Don’t bail. The more you run from this, the harder it becomes to think and act clearly.

Don’t pressure her. Applying pressure will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation.
You need to work together as a team.

Don’t forget. You have a very active role in this situation, listen to input as well as give your
thoughts. Seek help from people you trust, and talk to more than one person as well as your
partner or girlfriend. Hiding the news from people who can genuinely help you, only increases the stress.

Gather all the facts. Get all the information, and seek help so you can help make a decision that
works for both of you.

You’re not alone either, we’re here to help.
