How accurate are OVRY™ Pregnancy Test Strips? Are they the same quality as the tests available for sale at the pharmacy?
When used correctly, OVRY™ Pregnancy Test Strips are over 99.7% accurate if used from the first day of your expected period. OVRY™ products offer the same accuracy and quality as the tests available from pharmacies - OVRY™ Pregnancy Test Strips are able to detect pregnancy just as soon (up to five days before the date of your expected period).
