Pregnancy tests

Home pregnancy tests work by recognizing the presence of the hormone hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) in a woman’s urine (pee). This hormone is only found in pregnant women.

The hCG pregnancy test strip is used to determine hCG in a urine sample. If hCG is present the kit is able to give you early awareness of your possible pregnancy. These pregnancy test kits are available at most grocery stores, pharmacies, and online. Taking a pregnancy test is only the first step of the journey. If you have a positive test, it is important to seek medical care even in the earliest stages of your pregnancy.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

Testing

If you've been diagnosed with an STI you can get treatment for your partner, too.

Many sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be easily diagnosed and treated. Anyone who is sexually active should get tested regularly for STI. If either you or your partner are infected, both of you need to receive treatment at the same time to avoid re-infection. In some instances an infected person can display no symptoms, which leaves a greater risk of passing it on to other sexual partners.

Prevention

STIs are bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections that are spread by sexual contact (oral, vaginal, anal). There are many ways you can reduce your risk of getting a sexually transmitted infection.
