Tender breasts? Check. Nausea and feeling bloated? Check. Extreme tiredness? Check.

Then, you miss your period, and the only thing left is for you to confirm that a baby is on the way with…a pregnancy test!

Make a quick trip to the pharmacy or supermarket and you will find a wide range of over-the-counter home test kits. These tests will tell you if your urine or blood contains the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG).

Your body produces hCG when a fertilised egg attaches to your uterus. If you get a positive ― even a faint I’m-not-so sure-what-that-is ― line, it’s highly likely you’re pregnant!
