Good news, y'all! You can now get your hands on a brand new pregnancy test that tells you just how far along you are! The test, from Clearblue, tells women whether they're one or two weeks pregnant, two or three weeks pregnant, or more than three weeks pregnant — which is great news for ladies who don't have regular periods and have trouble finding out their due date.
The super-smart Clearblue test arrived in stores last month and is said to be 93 percent accurate in its reading, according to a study from Geneva's SPD Swiss Precision Diagnostics GmbH, which compared the Clearblue test results with lab-analyzed urine tests. While the test was only recently given the green light by the FDA, it's been available in Europe since 2008.
The test is about $16 for a two pack, and determines how far along a woman is by measuring the hormone levels in her urine. Bob Barbieri, chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Brigham and Women's' Hospital in Boston, says that the test can help women decide when to schedule an ultrasound, accommodate their lives for morning sickness, and estimate their due date.
