by pregnancy journalist
When it comes to taking a pregnancy test, the options can be a little overwhelming. There are so many on the market these days (and some of them can get fairly pricey).

If only there were an easier way, I remember thinking. Like a pregnancy test you could make yourself. Enter: the pregnancy toothpaste test. Yep, this is a thing. According to a YouTube tutorial that’s going viral, […]

by pregnancy journalist
Primodos is back in the news. First prescribed in 1958 as a ‘hormonal pregnancy test’ (HPT), Primodos was taken off the market by manufacturer Schering (now Bayer) in 1978, amidst rising concerns of a possible association with birth defects.
