Fertility Talks: Breaking the Silence

Whilst fertility issues are increasingly being more openly talked about, recognised in the workplace and options for alternative ways to conception are emerging weekly, the process and mindset of continual monotonous urine testing is having an impact on people’s mental health.

If you delve into the IVF and fertility industry even for a minute, you will hear ‘I am just so over peeing on a stick’ over and over again. It is more than just praying for a positive result, it is the mental strain that it takes to repeat the same process over and over again, for months on end.


Late-Night Worries: Sleepless Nights and Urine Tests

Should women really still need to endure sleepless nights waiting for morning urine results? Waking up at 3am needing to pee but holding it in until it is actually uncomfortable just to ensure we have waited long enough to get the best possible reading? No longer should we be in the bathroom taking a pregnancy test alone, fertility journeys should not create loneliness.


Ending the Isolation: Redefining Fertility Journeys

This was one of the main reasons Una at home, an at-home testing company with a difference, added the NG Biotech blood pregnancy test to their collection. The brand, who are on a mission to make health awareness ‘trendy,’ offer a department-style platform with a collection of home testing kits with unique properties from all around the world.


Una at Home's Mission

The NG PRECISION+ Pregnancy Blood Test is the first all-in-one pregnancy blood test that you can do at home, at any time of the day or night. With a sensitivity of 10mIU/mL, it is one of the most accurate and sensitive pregnancy tests on the market. And because the Hcg hormone appears in blood before it appears in urine, NG Precision+ can give results up to 3 days sooner than traditional urine tests. With one painless finger prick sample.


Commercial Director Laura states:  

“We believe this test could truly change the approach towards how women carry out a pregnancy test. In a fast-paced world, having a test that can be used anywhere and anytime with no real restrictions just gives women more options, which can impact our personal journey and lifestyle.”


5 things you may not know about Hcg (the pregnancy hormone):

  1. Hcg is produced in response to the fertilization of an egg.
  2. Hcg is secreted by the trophoblast cells of the developing embryo and placenta.
  3. The production of Hcg increases through the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. It doubles every 24-48 hours, then remains stable for the remainder of the pregnancy.
  4. Hcg can be measured in blood or urine.
  5. Hcg is detectable in blood approximately 8 days after conception and in urine by day 11.
