We’ve all been there. Staring at a faint line on a pregnancy test, wondering if it’s a ghost, a cruel trick of evaporation, or the real deal. The panic sets in, the mental math begins, and before you know it, you’re sprinting to the nearest dollar store for another test. But hold on, that bargain bin pregnancy test might actually be costing you more than you think.

Let’s bust the myth of the “reusable” pregnancy test. Yes, we’ve all heard the whispers, the urban legends of dipping that same stick twice and hoping for a definitive answer. But here’s the truth: pregnancy tests are single-use for a reason. Once that chemical reaction starts, once those antibodies have interacted with your hCG levels, the game is over. Reusing the test is not only unreliable (evaporation lines can mimic real results!), but it can also prolong uncertainty and anxiety.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: “But Glow, I’m on a budget!” We hear you. Pregnancy tests, especially when followed by doctor’s visits and prenatal care, can add up. That’s where Natalist comes in.
