Asda Home Pregnancy Test
Advantages: Reasonable price, reliable, easy to use
Disadvantages: Does not come with a sample cup, no indication of "how pregnant"
***Before reading this is a very girly review and talks about pregnancy and the joys of being a woman and urinating on a stick! Therefore all those of a sensitive disposition need to bear this in mind!!!*****
Prior to my current pregnancy I have had to take a few pregnancy tests; when I got a positive result at the start of my pregnancy with my twin boys and also a very nerve wracking test when my twin boys were 6 months old and I had pregnancy symptoms (thankfully which was negative). On each of these occasions I have always begrudged paying a lot of money for pregnancy tests so have opted for the lower priced tests which included the Asda Home Pregnancy Tests.
***Asda Home Pregnancy Tests***
Asda market these pregnancy tests as easy to use and are 99% effective. The Asda Home Pregnancy Tests come in a double pack which are standard pregnancy tests and give a simple positive or negative result. The tests are standard looking pregnancy tests; a plastic stick with a absorbent stick on the end in order to absorb urine. The tests absorb the urine and then give the result as they detect pregnancy hormones
The tests come with full instructions on how to use and give you a result in 3 minutes.
The tests are available from Asda and cost £3.59.
I have used these tests on two occasions now one with a positive result and the other with a negative result.
I do think now that these are very easy to use pregnancy tests however on reflection this probably is because I have now taken a number of tests. However on the first ever pregnancy test that I used I used an Asda Home Pregnancy test and I did find that the instructions were clear and the test was easy to use for someone who was in a panicked worked up state.
Each of the tests in the double pack come sealed in a foil wrapper. Once you remove the foil you can take the test. You simply take the plastic tip off the end of the pregnancy test. This reveals an absorbent stick to take a sample of your urine on. To use the test you can either use a (disposable) cup and dip the pregnancy test in or put the tip of the pregnancy test in the urine flow. Personally the first option is definitely the easiest as you can ensure the stick absorbs enough urine to take the test. A disadvantage of these tests is that you do not get a disposable cup with the tests which many brands provide for ease of use.
The plastic pregnancy test has a window to view your result. In this window one vertical line will always appear on the left hand side of the window. This is the control line to show the test has worked and if this does not appear it means that the test has not worked and is essentially a faulty test. For a negative result there will be no further lines in this window. A positive result will show a second vertical line meaning you are pregnant. Out of the tests that I have done using the Asda Home Pregnancy tests I have never had a faulty test.
The instructions on the tests state that you should wait 3 minutes for your result. On the occasion I used this test and (thankfully) got a negative result after 3 minutes there was no line or even hint of blurring so I could clearly see that I was not pregnant. Which was an accurate result as I turned out not to be pregnant. However for peace of mind I did do the other test from the double pack which is a massive advantage of these Asda Home pregnancy tests you have two tests so even if you are not convinced by the first result you can test again.
On the occasion that I used these tests and got a positive result (when I was expecting my twin boys) the result was clear within less than a minute. A second line appeared within a minute and this was very dark and clear. However I do think this was due to the fact I was around six weeks pregnant with two babies when I took this test and would say that usually it is advisable to wait 3 minutes before the result of the test shows
I would definitely recommend the Asda Home pregnancy tests as they have always given an accurate result when I have used them and although not the easiest brand of pregnancy test to read the result from it still is very easy even at the most nerve wracking of moments to clearly see what the result is.
An advantage of these tests is that there come in a double pack which costs £3.59. This is extremely good value by pregnancy test standards which can be priced at £7.00 for a single test.
The test does not give an indication of how far along in your pregnancy you are like some more expensive brands do but in my opinion a positive or negative result is all you really need.
Summary: A value for money home pregnancy test
