Firstvue One-Step Pregnancy Test Strips
Advantages: Quick, easy results and they're really cheap
Disadvantages: Nothing given to pee into...I thought I'd need to pee into my mates mug lol
Being in a relationship no matter how careful you seem to be things can go wrong in the sex department from time to time lol. I have been seeing my boyfriend for 6 years on and off (it's been complicated believe me lol!) and recently we got back together on a permanent basis. He is the love of my life and I've never been happier.
Sex is a part of our relationship of course and we are very careful. we've never ruled out having children together in the future but we are both planners and with us only getting back together properly recently...babies, nappies and all that malarkey do not feature at the moment!
However after having safe sex I never came on my period. I waited and I waited and at two weeks late and feeling like a bloated whale I went into panic mode which probably made the situation a whole lot worse looking back on it lol. My bf was in Manchester (where he lives) and I was living above a pub, at my mates looking for a flat to share with another mate in Weston Super Mare. In the end I confided in my friends and I actually was told about these in Poundland being 2 strips for a pound so I purchased them. I thought they'd do the job and even if they were a bit rubbish least I had two to play with!
White and light pink box and on the front of it I am told that they are Firstvue One-Step Pregnancy Test Strips and that they are a Value 2 pack and that they give over 99% accuracy, fast, easy to read results, that you can use them any time of day and that they give value for money and there is a picture of a woman stroking her tummy on there. Other information on the back of the box include being told a bit about the product and shown a diagram of how they show results and contact details for Mediply Diagnostic Limited (the manufacturer of the product) are given. Open up the box you get a pamphlet in there again telling you about the product and inside you get two white plastic pouches and on each one, again a diagram is shown along with showing you how to read the results and the expiry date is clearly shown. It's all very straightforward to understand which at the time I highly appreciated!
Well no container is given within the pack to put urine into so finding something is up to you. You do have to make sure your pee isn't too big cos the strip needs to sit in it to get a reading but there is a mark on the thin white strip to show you that clearly. No time is stated to wait for the reading but basically you get a reading as soon as it's ready which in my case was in about a minute. One red line pops up for a negative result, two for positive and if nothing at all appears it's time to grab the other pregnancy test strip cos it never worked at all. When done dispose of the lot and that is it.
These are great, cheap and cheerful strips. I found them very simple to use and fuss free, and all I wanted was a quick result. I got my negative result I so wanted and only used one strip to get it so peace of mind only cost me a mere 50p!
I recommend these. They may not be fancy for a quick result I thought they were superb for the price!
These are available in Poundland and other discount stores and are also available to purchase online.
