The urge to confirm pregnancy is something that has been around since the beginning of mankind. The very first methods we know of were used by the ancient Egyptians. They used the urine of the woman to water wheat and barley. Germination indicated pregnancy and the type of grain that sprouted was taken as a guide to the baby’s sex.
Nowadays the methods used are based on hCG, the human chorionic gonadotropin produced by placenta. Surprisingly, the first home pregnancy testing kit only went onto the market in 1978, the same year the first baby was born after In vitro fertilisation.
Apart from confirming the fertility success, the purpose of the pregnancy section is to provide you with important information on healthy pregnancy and various prenatal tests. This is important, especially in relation to various diagnoses or delayed pregnancy, as well as answering your most frequent questions about delivery.
If you are looking into safe methods of DNA testing, pain management or expecting twins, in-fertility is the right source, as we understand your worries and the special vigilance that comes with expecting the long wished for child.
