Asda is a British supermarket chain that was founded in 1949. It’s headquarters are in Leeds, West Yorkshire. It is a wholly owned division of Walmart. The company sells it’s own-brand Asda Pregnancy Tests in most stores, alongside tests from brands such as Clearblue and First Response.
How Much Is an Asda Pregnancy Test?
A pack of two of these high street pregnancy tests costs £3.50 at Asda, which is a fairy competitive price for an own-brand test. The equivalent Sainsbury’s Pregnancy Test costs £3.60, for example. These tests are described as one step tests that are easy to use and offer results in 3 minutes. Like most pregnancy tests they should be over 99% accurate when used correctly.
Asda advise that this is an early pregnancy test. It can be used as early as 4 days before your period is expected.
These Asda pregnancy tests are manufactured by Ciga Healthcare Limited, a company based in Ballymena. Ciga also manufactures it’s own tests under the Suresign brand name.
Asda Pregnancy Test Reviews
These pregnancy tests can be bought online at Asda and the website currently has 41 reviews for the product. Even though theses tests are fairly cheap, we would expect them to be reliable. However many of the reviews on the Asda website are negative, some are very scathing indeed.
Some of the reviews on the website report that the Asda tests gave them a false positive result and the use subsequently found out that they were not pregnant by taking another brand of test or visiting the doctor. This was a distressing experience for many.
Other Asda pregnancy test reviews state that the test results came back as negative when in fact they were pregnant. Many reviewers tell how they only found out they were pregnant after using a Clearblue Pregnancy Test to confirm their suspicions.
Some users report that the tests are not easy to read as they deliver faint lines which are difficult to interpret. Many women are not sure if this is a positive result or not.
In 2018, the Independent newspaper reported on the problem of Asda pregnancy tests giving false positive results. The newspaper claimed that Asda had apologised to one customer.
Generally the negative reviews outweigh the positive reviews which is why we cannot recommend these tests. If you are looking for a cheap pregnancy test with proven reliability, we would always suggest you try our own Zoom Baby Midstream Pregnancy Test.
