Preconception Health Test

Insight Pharmaceuticals recently introduced e.p.t Preconception Health Test, a new product that measures vaginal acidity and indicates the presence of infections so women can visit their doctor and seek treatment before trying to conceive. The test consists of a swab with an easy-to-hold grip and a color-changing tip. If any part of the tip is stained blue or green, vaginal acidity is abnormal, which can be a sign of an infection, indicating that women should see their healthcare provider. If the color tip remains unchanged, vaginal acidity is normal. The e.p.t Preconception Health Test retails for $17.99 per two-count box.
