Review of Predictor Pregnancy Test by Elysia2003

Advantages: Quick, easy to use and cheap
Disadvantages: May not give you the result you want...

Predictor Early Pregnancy Test Well, I must start off by saying that this is a product review I didn't expect to be writing. At 43 I'd have thought my days of purchasing pregnancy tests would be well and truly over, they obviously aren't, so here I am ... Read review

Pregnancy Test: Part Two
Review of Clearblue digital with conception indicator by Gingerkitty

Advantages: Don't have to interpret result yourself, conception indicator for peace of mind
Disadvantages: Conception indicator may not be accurate, which could cause you to worry

So, when I took an unbranded pregnancy test and got a positive result, I decided to confirm it with a branded version, which would give a "Pregnant" or "Not Pregnant" result instead of the lines you have to interpret yourself. I remembered reading somewhe ... Read review

Pregnancy Test: Part One
Review of Tesco Pregnancy Test by Gingerkitty

Advantages: Cheap, easy to use, thorough instructions, hygienic cap for absorbent tip
Disadvantages: The line can be faint and open to interpretation

I'll set the scene: it's around 7am on a Saturday morning, and you are rudely awoken by your wife bursting into the room waving a stick in your face, declaring "There's a line. There's a line. It's only faint, but there's definitely a line". Thankfully my ... Read review

The best pill I've been on! No side effects at all :-)
Review of Cilest Contraceptive Pill by clover555

Advantages: No side effects! None! Much lighter periods. No pregnancy (obviously)
Disadvantages: Can't think of any....your doctor won't give it to you unless you ask...

...six types of pill and Cilest is by far the best, in my opinion. It seems to have the right balance of low enough dose to not have any side effects,but strong enough to work properly - unlike Mercilon/Marvelon on which I had spotting all the ti ... Read review

Review of Asda Home Pregnancy Test by Milliesmum123

Advantages: Cheap and reliable
Disadvantages: none

We have been trying for a baby for a few months and we have little money to spare and will have even less once we have a new family addition and so we don't want to spend a fortune buying pregnancy tests. Of course you always hope that the first test you ... Read review

Review of Nexplanon by kattwig

Advantages: reversible, lasts for three years
Disadvantages: side effects can be a bit traumatic

One of the biggest decisions a woman makes throughout her life is her choice and use of contraception and I think it's really important to say how good something works for you when you find it. I'm not saying that my methods are best for everyone but I ha ... Read review

Review of Sasmar Conceive Plus Lubricant by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Smooth sensation.
Disadvantages: Branding - the on-valid conception claims.

Conceive Plus Pre Conception Lubricant Alarm-bells ring in my head whenever I observe tautology on packaging. I’m referring to the terms: conceive (becoming pregnant) and conception (process of becoming pregnant) – a marketing ploy that over-p ... Read review

Review of One Step Ultra Early Pregnancy tests by sandemp

Advantages: Very cheap, accurate early results
Disadvantages: Very basic, need to pee in pot, instructions could be better

Sorry to hear of the awful problems you have faced x by brittle1906
This is a very frightening situation, and I'm afraid women are not being given the information they need to make an informed choice. I 'm afraid the NHS does pay doctors a premium to convince women to use these and extra premiums if they keep them in. For this reason a local hospital tried to force me to keep an IUD in inspite of nearly bleeding to death from the bloody thing - better to risk my life than risk the premium. I won't rate this as I don't want to rate down, and for a higher rate this would need more detail on the IUD in general, but I can tell how upset you are. I would strongly recommend googling: The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust and having a look at their forum. The ladies there are very well informed and may be able to help you. I leave a message in your private guestbook as well, but do hang in there :) by Marge3781
