The history of the pregnancy test card: A brief overview

In today's post, I want to give you a brief overview of the history of the pregnancy test card. The journey of this essential tool dates back to ancient Egypt, where women would urinate on seeds and observe their growth as an indicator of pregnancy. Fast forward to the 20th century, the first modern pregnancy test was developed in 1960, using a hormone called hCG as the primary indicator. The 1970s saw the invention of the first home pregnancy test kit, forever changing the way women discovered they were expecting. Since then, pregnancy test cards have evolved into the convenient and accurate tool we know and rely on today.
