I was just in Lloyds Pharmacy (not for anything TTC related) and noticed they were promoting these new pregnancy tests called Viola, they claim to be 99% effective from 8dpo.
I'd never heard of them.... I wasn't even looking at the tests promise, you just couldn't missed the bright orange promotional signs!!!

I have never heard of them, but they seem too be quite expensive for £9.99 for 2, It would put me off buying them tbh when there is cheaper options..

I guess they're the same price as cbd's are on Amazon. Not heard of them dolly p, but I'd probably try them as I'm a sucker for promotions.

It's not possible to be 99% accurate at 8dpo. Many women wouldn't have even implanted at that stage, let alone produced enough hcg to register on a pregnancy test.

Very good point OB... I imagine after you've bought them there will be something in very small writting inside owning up to the fact and its only 99% accurate for 5% of women or something like that!!

Found this: superearlypregnancytest.com I interpret the text after the asterix as meaning if there is 5iul HCG they are 99% accurate at reading it. That is certainly more sensitive that most which detect 10iul at best. If HCG doubles every two days it makes sense - you can test at 8dpo (5iul) rather 10dpo (10iul) which is when many early tests say you can test (4 days before period). So it's two days earlier. But, as OB says, if you haven't implanted/not started producing HCG you'll get nothing.

There is also the risk of detecting a chemical pregnanc the earlier you test. Not that I can talk as I have no will power.

After seeing so many ladies get positives from testing early just for AF to show days later I don't think I'd want to be testing that early to be honest but I can see why some people might want to.
