Is having painful periods going to reduce my chances of getting pregnant?

Unlikely. Painful periods are very common, and usually there is no serious, underlying cause for this. If this is the case, you are just as likely to get pregnant as anyone else. Rarely, conditions such as endometriosis, chronic pelvic infection or fibroids may cause painful periods. In these situations, further investigations are sometimes appropriate if there is any concern that, for instance, your fallopian tubes are blocked or damaged.
How do pregnancy test kits work?

Pregnancy test kits require you to test a sample of your urine. The absorbent wand reacts if a hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin), which is produced by the embro, is present in your urine. As a backup, many kits include a second test.

How to use a test kit Not all kits look like the one shown here, but they work in basically the same way. Remove the test wand from the cap or cartridge. Hold the absorbent sampler in your urine stream for a few seconds. Replace the wand into the cartridge. Wait as directed. If you are pregnant, both windows will show a color.
