Nearly all reproductive specialists advise fertility charting as a means to become pregnant.Yes, in all cases diagnostic tests for pregnancy or ovulation do require complete clinical support for various approvals and certification marks (e.g., FDA-Approval, CE Marking, ISO standardization, etc). The accuracy of various diagnostic kits have been established in the laboratory under clinical guidelines. Our testing products are over 99% accurate if used properly (as instructed by the manufacturer). This means observing all testing procedures as well as interpretive guidelines.While non-prescription dietary supplements/vitamins do not require FDA-Approval or extensive clinical research, many of our products have been subjected to such research.
