When can I take a pregnancy test?

Good question!

The earliest that someone can take a pregnancy test is 14 days after the sexual contact.  At that time someone will get an accurate result.  If someone takes a pregnancy test before the 14 days, they may not get an accurate result and would want to take another test once it has been 14 days.

Someone can buy pregnancy tests over the counter. There is no age restriction and they are just as effective as long as it has been 14 days.

If, however, someone wants to make an appointment to take a pregnancy test or to discuss birth control or anything else they can give Teen Clinic a call at 303-442-5160.
