Despite this, many women (according to statistics - every fourth) are not sure of the correct evaluation of the test results. In such an emotional moment, emotions overwhelm us, we are overly excited and can give out wishful thinking. After all, the second test strip is not always clearly visible or completely absent. Often this line is very washed away, which allows us to fantasize and think out the result. There is even a colloquial term - a "ghost strip". There are women who see in this something mystical and mysterious. But the other part of them do not want to chase ghosts - for them the most accurate answer is "yes" or "no", without any half-way options.
So, as you know, progress on the spot is not worth, thanks to which today there is such an opportunity! On sale there were digital (electronic) tests, differing from their predecessors by the lack of an alternative in interpreting the results. One of the first - a single-stage digital test Clearblue.
The digital test works on the same principle as all classic test strips or inkjet tests. He also responds to the presence in the urine of a woman's pregnancy hormone - gonadotropin. You can conduct an electronic test at any time of the day, and at the same time it displays the result with an accuracy of more than 99% from the first day of the proposed cycle. But even before the delay, the test can produce very reliable data: 51% of women received the result "pregnant" 4 days before the expected cycle, 82% for 3 days, 90% for 2 days, and 95% for 1 day. However, manufacturers warn that a negative answer at the earliest stage should be checked on the first day of the cycle by repeated testing.
But all this can concern any other highly sensitive pregnancy test, you will say. And you will be absolutely right. The only difference between the digital test is that it saves us the opportunity to fantasize about the results. After, As the urine absorbs into the absorbent strip, the test is activated, and an "hourglass" symbol appears on the LCD screen, indicating that the test is usable and begins testing. After 3 minutes it is replaced by the symbol "plus" in case of pregnancy or "minus" in the absence of pregnancy. There are also options in the form of emerging words: "pregnant" - "pregnant" or "not pregnant" - "not pregnant." The third option is not given - and everything becomes extremely clear. So if you do not like to guess - this test option will be ideal for you.
Test results are saved on the screen for 24 hours. However, this does not mean that after the disappearance of the test can be used again - this is a mistaken opinion. Like any other, the electronic test can only be used once. And its result can not be taken as final either. Only gynecological examination and research can give you a guaranteed exact answer to the question whether you are pregnant or not.
As you can see, digital tests are very convenient, easy to use, highly reliable, and most importantly - unambiguous in reading the results. But there is one more difference of such tests: they cost in times more expensive than classical analogues. If you are willing to pay for certainty - any whim for your money!
