To women with kids or soon to have kids or have had false alarms (nurses and doctors too):
Not your period
So you missed your period
and you're wondering 'Am I pregnant?'
You go get yourself a pregnancy kit. Now, you're in the pharmacy and you see an array of pregnancy tests. What do you do?
You're in a panic and you're confused by all the different kits.
Do you choose:
A) Ask someone for help.
B) Grab every test there is to grab.
C) Start reading each label.
D) Feel flustered, go home, wait, and call a doctor.
E) Get Clearblue's latest pregnancy test.
Aside: Okay. I should mention I'm a guy (if you didn't know), so I don't know much about this except from what I hear, see, or watch (from TV/movies). The above scenario is my imagination of an unplanned pregnancy situation. I bring up the fact that I am a guy only because I don't have experience with this, so you'll have to forgive my ignorance and inform me of mistakes.
I was watching TV when a commercial by Clearblue started showcasing the 'next generation of pregnancy test...The most advanced piece of technology you will ever pee on...Results in words'.
I couldn't help laughing out loud (it was a reflex reaction). Results in words. I am aware of colors and lines, but now words?! What was wrong with colors and lines?
Did the commercial just plainly deride women everywhere? Or do women really need to be told they are pregnant in words?
I get that words are an improvement, but is it necessary? Do you not feel like you are being mocked? How advance does the industry need to go for simply peeing on a stick?
Share your experiences? A? B? C? D? or E?
