A Brief History Of The Pregnancy Test
The Single Strip Applicator
The '80s and '90s brought us the single strip applicator approach to pregnancy tests we’ve all come to know and love. Now women could just pee on a stick and wait minutes for a blue line announce a pregnancy. The previous laboratory-in-your-bathroom kits took hours to complete.
The FDA approved Clear Blue Easy’s digital test for those of us who disliked determining just how faint or solid that blue line really was. Since 2003, we’ve celebrated reading "pregnant" or "not pregnant" right on the stick.
