How good are these tests?
We now sell literally millions of these tests in the UK and throughout the world - they are made specifically for us and comply with CE (European Community) and FDA (United States) rules and regulations and every pack has the approval details printed on them. These tests are sold to some of the largest organizations such as the UK National Health Service (NHS). The tests supplied to the NHS are identical to the ones sold to you and every batch is checked religiously for quality and accuracy - they are more than 99% accurate. As for the expiry dates, they will always be at least 15 months away and more often nearly 2 years (which is the legal maximum).
How does a pregnancy test work?
A pregnancy test measures the presence of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) in your urine. HCG is produced in the placenta shortly after the embryo attaches to the uterine lining. This hormone then builds up rapidly in your body in the days following successful conception.
When should I do the test?
The test can be taken at any time of the day. However, we do recommend that you test first thing in the morning when your urine is most concentrated. Do not drink large amounts of fluid in an attempt to increase the volume of urine as this may dilute the urine making HCG more difficult to detect.
