I was tidying my drawer after I came across the forgotten and fresh pack of Sainsbury's Pregnancy Test that I had years ago. so I believed I'm planning to review it before throwing away. I remember buying it although I did not trust the cheap Poundland and 99p Shop ones but also didn't need to spend GBP 10. So I elected for the mid-price pregnancy test. A quick check online shows a pack is currently retailing at GBP3.50.
A pack comprises 2 pregnancy test sticks and is wrapped independently in a foil pouch having an outer cardboard box. The test sticks are plastic and white . It's the standard size and length as the other brands. The evaluation stick consists of a cover which shields the absorbent tip before and following use. There is a result window to signify the results along with a long handle for simplicity. A detailed directions leaflet is enclosed which needs to be read to ensure you are taking the test right.
A first morning urine sample is chosen as it usually contains the greatest concentration, to be certain the results are somewhat more dependable. Nonetheless, urine specimens accumulated at any given period of the day might be utilized. Before use, allow the pregnancy test to reach room temperature before opening the foil pouch. Eliminate the cap to expose the absorbent point. Hold the test by the thumb grip in the handle with all the open absorbent tip pointing downwards. Take attention the pee does not come with all the result window. Lay the test down on a flat surface with the window and wait for the red-purple line(s) to appear. Read the results after 1 to 3 minutes and discard it after a quarter hour. This can be can't and a disposal pregnancy test be reused.
If the test is performed correctly, a red- purple coloured Control Line will show in the result window. If favorable, two red-purple coloured lines appear. You need to maintain the Control area and another line must be in the Test area which can be the end closest to the absorbent point.
Clinical assessments have shown that Sainsbury's Pregnancy Test is more precise. It detects hCG in urine at concentration or greater. The test can be taken as early as 4 days before your period is due, and offers a one step simple to read results. This really is a user-friendly self-testing pregnancy test that doesn't hinder your body. To duplicate the test or for extra reassurance, there are 2 evaluation sticks in a pack. They proved to be trustworthy for me with accurate results.
I bought this test because my local Sainsbury's was out of Clearblue (that I have used before and been happy with)Also it was cheap for a pg test (£8.99) so I thought I will give it a whirl, a pg test is a pg test right? Well no. To start with this looked like any other test in that you wet it with your urine and then wait for the result. 4 minutes so a little longer than most tests. Well I thought not a mega problem, so I went to use it and discovered that 2 pink dots tell's you if the test has worked and if you are pg or not. As the 2 result window's get wet the entire window goes pink so you sit and wait for them to dry out. I was not mad on this idea I must admit, I like other tests where you only see the window going wet not the colour that will eventually tell you if you are pg or not. It made me feel as if there was a large chance of it being wrong (there is probably not but I felt that way about it) Also where as in other tests I have used I have always seen the result window that shows that the test has worked very quickly here it actually took 3 minutes (yes I am sad I timed it <g>) to show a dot that the test had worked correctly. The test is reliable from the day your period is due (according to packet) so it is not one of the most sensitive around. However if you dont want to spend the extra money, it is easy to use and will give you a yes or no in four minutes. Personally I will wait until they have Clearblue in should they be out again next time.
