You Can Now Buy Flushable Pregnancy Tests

By Isabella Lovric

Taking a pregnancy test can be nerve-wracking enough without the fear of somebody finding the test.

Bethany Edwards and Anna Simpson have invented a more sustainable and private way for women to find out if they’re pregnant. 

Lia is ultra-slim and ultra-discreet. Because testing is your business.

Their new pregnancy test invention will surely take over the ancient white stick.

You can flush it straight down the loo without your roommates, parents or in-laws finding out.

Their company is called Meet Lia and they are set to launch their new pregnancy tests mid-year!

How does it work though?

Well, Lia repels water long enough to take the test, then breaks down like 3-ply toilet paper when flushed.

It is environmentally friendly!

Unlike the infamous white stick, it won’t add two-million pounds of plastic to landfills every year.
