From the moment you receive these tests they try to make a good impression. The packaging is simple, yet well organized and effective. These test strips work as dip tests that you dip into a urine sample. The package contains good amount of test, especially for the price.
The pregnancy test and ovulation test are clearly marked differently so they are easy to distinguish. The instructions for the pregnancy test is very clear and easy to follow.
These tests are also really reasonably priced, especially when you take into account the amount of tests that are included. Depending on how you track your cycle, these tests can actually supply you for quite some time.
In the spirit of fairness, as there are always positive or negative results, we won’t only stay with the good things. On the more negative side, the ovulation strips take a while longer than the promised 3 minutes to show accurate results.
The ovulation tests (that read LH) can also do with better instructions, because you need to take into account where in your cycle you are and that you need to test after 10 am or even after noon to get the best results.
The ovulation strips, and sometimes some of the pregnancy strips, can get evaporation lines. The result lines can also be quite light in some cases, so check carefully if you see one or two lines. One line means only the control test activated and it is a negative result.
The main thing to remember here, is that if you are new to ovulation test strips, they can seem a bit more complicated than a straightforward home pregnancy test. But once you know how to track your cycle and when to test, the results will be quite accurate.
In our opinion the positives outweigh the negatives with these tests.
When it comes to planning a family, there are already many things you can worry about. The test that should help you confirm if you are on your way to becoming a parent should not be one of them.
Remember that for a positive result you need to see two lines, even if they are faint. It is actually as simple as that. The generation guard pack with pregnancy tests and ovulation tests offers really good value for money. On the whole it is very easy to use and gives accurate results.
Take the time to carefully check when and how to test your LH levels with the ovulation tests, as these can be a little more complicated to get right immediately. The pregnancy test has a high level of accuracy especially for a less expensive one.
We can really recommend these tests. They are well packaged and are quite accurate for basic dip tests. They give you results within a few quick minutes so you can know where you stand. As with any home medical test, if you are still unsure after a long time, and mixed results, talk to your doctor.
These tests can be used by those of you who are scientific about the way you track your cycle and ovulation, but can also be used by the less scientific women out there. Hopefully this review has cleared up weather Generation Guard’s test will be useful for you as you try to conceive. Good luck with your exciting journey.
