Digital pregnancy tests have become more common in recent years. These may look different from the outside, but they work exactly the same way. Use sensors to detect colour changes and decide whether to display ‘pregnant' or ‘not pregnant' on the screen.
The first signs of pregnancy come before using the pregnancy test. This can be in the form of tiredness, missed periods, or nausea and vomiting. A home pregnancy test can confirm the suspicions they may generate with 99% accuracy. The most reliable result should be a week after the missing period. However, a pregnancy test can confirm that you were pregnant earlier than 8 days before pregnancy.
In addition, the study focuses on leading industry players:
- Abbott (Acon Labs)
- Clearblue Easy
- Devon Medical
- EKF Diagnostics
- First Response
- First Signal
- Medgyn Products
- Nantong Egens
- TaiDoc Technology
Pregnancy tests work by detecting the presence of hormones, human chorionic Gonadotropins (HCG). HCG is a hormone produced by cells in the placenta. Its production begins at the point where the developing embryo is attached to the uterus 6-12 days after pregnancy.
A pregnancy test is used to determine whether an individual is pregnant. The two primary methods are testing for the human pregnancy hormone in blood or urine and ultrasonography. Also, testing blood for hCG results in the earliest detection of pregnancy.
The pregnancy test meters market is expected to grow in the forecast period due to advancement of technology. Moreover, the rise in government initiatives to enhance medical facilities and focus on research and development activities fuel the pregnancy test meters market growth.
