Dear ladies, world's first flushable pregnancy test is ready; launching next year

But what if you want to show off the results of your pregnancy test to your mother, friend or partner?

If so, you'll reckon this new invention is pretty darn clever.

Much like traditional pregnancy tests, the small paper pad reacts to urine, showing either one or two blue lines to indicate the result.

"1987 brought us the first cell phone, the boombox, the Apple personal computer and the at-home pregnancy test".

Lia Diagnostics have developed the first pregnancy test in the world that you can actually fluch down the toilet once you have read your results.

Lia made its global debut on December 4, 2017 at TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin's Startup Battlefield, the world's leading authority in debuting game-changing technologies and revolutionary startups, and took home the grand prize. It was that "stick" which revealed the secret and we know that it can be a "déjà vu" moment for many.

The new model of pregnancy test, which is 99% accurate according to the FDA, is easier to dispose of than the usual plastic pregnancy tests because it's made with the same fibres you would find in toilet paper.

Oh - and better yet too? Taking the test is a simple process: use it like any over pregnancy test, wait for the results and if you wish to be especially discreet, just flush it down the toilet when you're finished.

According to Mom.me, the people at Lia Diagnostic expect the test to available in United States pharmacies as early as 2018. Listen to the brand new episode NOW in the link below.

Dubbed Lia, the flushable test is made from the same natural plant fibres as toilet paper, but is created to repel water for long enough to show a positive or negative result.
