Detect5 Pregnancy progression test...anyone tried it? xp

I guess it's more for after you test positive.

Detect5 Progressive Pregnancy Test

The run down is this: It has 5 tests on one casette. Each test requires a subsequently higher amount of hCG. So, the first is 20 mIU, the second is 50 mIU and so on and so forth up to I think 10,000.

The point is to take them a few days apart to see how your hCG numbers are rising. Kind of an at-home beta check.

MAN I'm tempted!!! Obviously they are expensive, but what a great idea!

I saw those on line once and was certainly intrigued - but then when I went back to try and find them again and I couldn't - so I was thinking maybe they were too good to be true?
WIll be checking this thread to see if anyone has tried them!

I haven't tried them, but I considered it. I read a few reviews which made me decide they weren't worth the money. They do look fun, though!

So the Detect5 Progressive Pregnancy Test measures five different levels of hCG in your urine. These levels are:

25 miu/ml
100 miu/ml
500 miu/ml
2,000 miu/ml
10,000 miu/ml

So when you pee on a stick (POAS), you will watch the Detect5 Progressive Pregnancy Test run these tests simultaneously. So, let's say you're in a very early pregnancy and your hCG is 40 miu/ml. If this is the case, the test would turn into a big fat positive (BPF) for the 25 miu/ml but read negative on the other four tests. If your hCG was 600 miu/ml the first three levels (25, 50 and 500 miu/ml) would be positive. This pregnancy test is not designed to be reused.

Sounds steep for sure, but here just buying 1 name brand test (not even digital) is about $15 - so not much more really

Definately too steep for POAS-aholic!
