Events over periods
In American market, only during the year 1978, the first home pregnancy test came. The EPT meant the Early Pregnancy Test and this also meant the Error Proof Test. The FDA furnished the approval for the first time to this home based pregnancy test and the debut was made at the rate of $10.
Sheep’s RBC, along with a test tube and a vial filled with purified water were in the package of this early home pregnancy test. There was an agreement by the doctors about the doing of this test at home. However, you see that they insisted on doing this test again after you visit their office.
Two hours were consumed for the carrying out of this early home pregnancy test. The medicine dropper along with a test tube some how terrified the users. Further, you need an angled mirror for viewing of result. This mirror is to be kept beneath the test tube placed in a plastic stand for reading of results. A dark ring indicated positive one.
Soon, this early home pregnancy test associated the thin blue line instead of a dark ring as an indicator of pregnancy. Inspite of this, you had to wait for many days before the tests assisted in the detection of pregnancy. Ninety seven per cent of accuracy was the averaged figure by EPT, for positives and eighty per cent of accuracy for negatives.
Yeah, baby. Remember that we have passed so many years. Imagine that it just takes two hours for going from oven to microwave. It may be funny for young women when they understood about this long waiting period. Whole test tube thing is not revealed here. This was found to be disordered and intimidating. We have to thank Almighty for the sticks and cups.
It’s so nice to find that you are pregnant. Early home pregnancy test was possible, only when the EPT came. However, Predictor, Answer and ACU-TEST followed this at a greater speed. Some how, now the EPT has modified its name as Error Proof Test. Currently, the concept of an early home pregnancy test is the one that can identify the pregnancy in the first day of a missed period or even earlier to that.
Women today are in need of checking for pregnancy and needs accuracy in early home pregnancy test and now, they are able to test for pregnancy “early”. Hence, the word ‘early’ seems to be of no longer an incentive for them. There is no much change in the last thirty years. Still we need to understand right now and lets better be right in this regard.
Some progress is now made. Blue line, which replaced the dark circle, is now removed and to the surprise, now, we have words. Just imagine what are they? They are the words PREGNANT and NOT PREGNANT. Its amazing to probe on who thought over this? However, this should have been done by somebody who strained his or her eyes too much by staring at the bottom of the tube.
