"Am I...? Am I not...? - The truth at the ninth day.

Confidentially. In your home. You and Graviteste, alone.

At the ninth day without menstruation, you go to a pharmacy and buy Graviteste (you don't need a prescription).

And in two hours you'll know if you are pregnant or not. Without third parties being brought into the matter. Without having to go here or there. Using a method as safe as laboratorial ones (99% reliable).

Graviteste detects a special hormone that is produced by your urine when you are pregnant.

It's a simple and practical process: Graviteste includes a test tube, a drop-measurer, an ampoule, a small mirror and a support.

Once you have collected your morning's urine into a thoroughly clean recipient, you place three drops in the test tube, you add the content of the ampoule, shake and place the test tube on the support - then you wait two hours for the result.

If at the bottom of the tube (the mirror will help you to see) there appears a red ring, you are pregnant.

If not, the lack of menstruation may be due to other reasons and it would be advisable to seek a doctor.

And there you have it! All with the utmost privacy. It's all between you and Graviteste. All of it perfectly by yourself."
