PREDICTOR®, your partner at the beginning of your life-changing nine-month journey



Conception is the first miracle. Being able to detect it early with PREDICTOR ® is a close second – especially for those who’ve been trying to fall pregnant for some time. Predictor ® allays the anxiety of knowing, easily and swiftly.

PREDICTOR ® was launched in 1971 and was the world’s first home pregnancy test kit. Over the last 41 years PREDICTOR ® has been a partner for countless women eagerly waiting for news of what is undeniably a life-changing moment.

Soon after conception, the cells that will become the placenta begin to produce a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Pregnancy tests give their results by detecting hCG levels in the urine. Whilst many tests suggest waiting until the first day of a missed period, pregnancy tests are able to detect hCG levels earlier. 

The sensitivity of the pregnancy test is measured as mIU/ml (milli-International Unit per millilitre).  They range in sensitivity from 10mIU/ml to 40mIU/ml – the lower the number, the more sensitive the test and the earlier it can detect pregnancy.

PREDICTOR ® has come a long way since being the world’s first home pregnancy test kit. Thanks to advancements in research and technology, PREDICTOR ® now offers women three options to find out the good news quickly and accurately:

  • PREDICTOR ® Mono or Duo packs detect an hCG level of 25mIU/ml and are over 99% accurate. The test is aimed at women who suspect that they may be pregnant and are looking for confirmation. The duo pack is useful for double checking the results. It’s a fact that 74% of women buy two or more home pregnancy tests to detect and then confirm pregnancy. 
  • PREDICTOR ® EARLY is aimed at women who are most anxious to know as soon as possible and would prefer not to wait. Being 99% accurate, it is able to detect a hCG level of 12.5mIU/ml and provide resultsfour days before the expected onset of a period. That said, hCG patterns in early pregnancy vary between individuals and not all women reach a detectable hCG level of 12.5 mIU/ml four days before a period. If the test is negative, they should test again on the day of the expected period.
  • PREDICTOR ® EARLY+ supports urgent detection. It’s a duo pack that contains one PREDICTOR ® EARLY to test four days before the anticipated start of menstruation and one PREDICTOR ® to confirm pregnancy.

PREDICTOR ® is in the enviable position of helping women confirm one of life’s most exciting events – the advent of a baby, a unique and wondrous creation that will begin the journey of a lifetime.

  • PREDICTOR Mono ® is priced at R 39.95 – R 44.95
  • PREDICTOR Duo ® is priced at R 69.95 – R 79.95
  • PREDICTOR ® EARLY is priced at R 49.95 – R 54.95
