New Pregnancy Test Can Tell When Fertilization Occurred
Clearblue announced that the FDA has approved Clearblue Advanced Pregnancy Test with Weeks Estimator at the 61st Annual Clinical Meeting of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).
Clearblue's newest pregnancy test uses technology that takes two hCG measurements instead of one. All home pregnancy tests are designed to detect the hormone hCG in urine to determine pregnancy. However, the Clearblue Advanced Pregnancy Test with Weeks Estimator also measures the concentration of hCG, which helps estimate when fertilization occurred.
The test is more than 99% accurate in detecting pregnancy from the day of the expected period, and about 93% accurate in estimating how many weeks based on time since ovulation.
The Clearblue Advanced Pregnancy test with Weeks Estimator will be available in September 2013.For more information call (800) 321-EASY or visit www.clearblueeasy.com.
