One Step Pregnancy Test Strips
Advantages: Easy to use, inexpensive
Disadvantages: little bit messy
Three weeks ago whilst I was on holiday, it suddenly dawned on me that aunt Flo hadn't visited for two months. I know that two months might seem an awful long time to not notice but she isn't the most reliable visitor and her visits can be infrequent.
I wasn't particularly worried about pregnancy as my husband had a vasectomy five years ago, but two months seemed to be a long time and I started to think 'what if ?' I know it is rare but you do hear these stories about ladies becoming pregnant years after their husbands had the snip. It started to play on my mind and I didn't want to spend the whole holiday worrying. So I decided to buy a pregnancy test.
I was quite shocked at how many different choices there were and how the prices went from 99p to £14, surely they all do the same thing - tell you if your pregnant???
I decided to buy a triple pack of the One step pregnancy strips for £2.99.
Whats in the box - There were three pregnancy tests, each strip came individually packaged in a foil wrapper. The strips are very thin approx 3mm wide and about 7 cm long. They are discreet and simple, no fancy casing or digital displays.
There was also clear instructions on how to use the tests and how to read the results. These instructions were also printed on the individual wrapper.
How to use - The instructions recommended conducting the test first thing in the morning but said that it would still work at any time of the day. The tests are really easy to use.
* Collect a urine sample in a clean, dry container
* Place the test strip into the container up to the blue marker line
* Leave for 30 seconds
* Place on a flat surface for five minutes
* Read results -
* Two lines = pregnant,
* One line = not pregnant
* No lines = Test invalid
You should not read the test after ten minutes, as the results may be wrong.
I found the tests incredibly easy to use, and the instructions were basic and jargon free.
I would have preferred to 'wee' directly onto the test as it's more hygienic and less messy but I didn't think this privilege was worth an additional five pounds.
I these tests would be a fantastic option for people who are trying for a baby and regularly buy pregnancy tests.
I bought mine from a little chemist, but I have since seen them in the pound shop and Wilkinsons.
My tests were negative and aunt Flo is back on track with her visiting, I am pleased I bought these as it put my mind at rest and I could enjoy my holiday without niggling thoughts.
Summary: A simple, easy to use pregnancy test.
