1 in 4 women

Have you seen the commercial for Clear Blue Easy Pregnancy Test? The one that says, "Did you know that 1 in 4 women can misread a traditional pregnancy test result?"

I searched for a video clip of the commercial, but couldn't find anything. But I did find it written their website here. In case you haven't seen the commercial and think I'm making this up.

That statistic surprised me. I think, "1 in 4 women can deny a pregnancy test" is more accurate.

It's pretty hard to not be able to tell if you're looking at a line or not. I'm convinced that the people in advertising think that we're all incredibly stupid. I'm in that 75% that can actually read a pregnancy test. I've never misread one.

those women who can't read a traditional pregnancy tests just might be the ones that are on that show where they gave birth without knowing they were pregnant. Nine months, no symptoms... yeah right. lol

I've known many women who have never misread a pregnancy test.

lol - I could see that back when the tests first came out and it was like a mini science experiment, but nowadays? Not so much.

Yeah... I want to see the stats behind that one, too. I remember never having an issue reading mine. They were always VERY clear. Maybe that just means I was VERY pregnant ;)

My cousin's wife kept re-taking the test until he stopped her and said, "I am pretty sure you are pregnant." Baby Kendall was born last week. :)

I have seen that commericial and it drives me a little crazy. Really how could one in four misread it? You are so right..denial!

Seriously, if you can't read a pregnancy test you shouldn't be getting pregnant.
