Pregnancy tests

If you have missed a menstrual period or have had unprotected sexual intercourse (without a condom or other form of birth control), it may be wise to take a pregnancy test. You can get pregnancy tests free of charge at all Amathea offices. You can also purchase a test at a pharmacy or supermarket. 

When should I take a pregnancy test?

  • It is recommended that you take a pregnancy test three weeks after any sexual intercourse that may have resulted in pregnancy. If you take the test earlier than this, it may give you a false negative result.
  • Most pregnancy tests will provide correct results as early as one day after the expected start of your period. 
  • Take the pregnancy test with a sample of morning urine. This will contain the highest concentration of pregnancy hormones.

Do you need someone to talk to?
At Amathea, you will meet healthcare professionals with extensive experience in counselling after an abortion. We are a healthcare service, have a duty of confidentiality, and can help you in your situation and in making your decision. You may come alone or together with your partner or co-parent.

All of our services are free of charge. We offer sessions in Norwegian and English. We can also book interpreters for other languages. A session here lasts about an hour, and you can talk with us on video, by phone, or at one of our offices. You decide how many sessions you need, and we will schedule these together.
