Primodos was a revolutionary oral pregnancy test. But was it safe? | Jesse Olszynko-Gryn | Science | The Guardian

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. Primodos contained the same mixture of hormones as in the oral contraceptive pill, first launched in the UK in 1961, only in much higher concentrations. Schering’s instructions were that a woman take “1 tablet on each of two consecutive days. Bleeding follows in 3-6 (rarely as long as ten) days, if there is no pregnancy.

by pregnancy journalist
I don’t keep anything. It’s sort of a joke in my house and also not funny at all to my kids or husband. There are constant cries of, “Why is my toy in the garbage?” or “Do you know what happened to the screws I left on the counter?” I will admit, I am very quick to toss.

My kids like to save everything, and coincidentally, so does my husband. Take his sneakers, for example. […]

Flush with success: Philly duo invents biodegradable pregnancy test

by pregnancy journalist
The idea for a biodegradable pregnancy test came to Bethany Edwards and Anna Simpson in graduate school. The Temple University alums were looking for ways to make everyday health care products sustainable while working on their master’s degrees at PennDesign — and the at-home pregnancy test stood out. “It hadn’t been functionally updated in 40 years,” said Edwards. “It was the same stiff plastic stick. What people were doing was adding expensive digital landfill-based components, but nobody was innovating on the sustainability side.” Simpson and Edwards developed this stamplike tool to press together two sheets of natural fibers over the […]
