BY Michael Johnsen

CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble in August launched its Clearblue Advanced Pregnancy Test with Weeks Estimator — the first and only pregnancy test that also provides an estimate of time since ovulation for women testing pregnant. The introduction will play brand dividends — before the new product’s sales could be tracked, Clearblue pregnancy test kits were already up 23.6% to $39.5 million, across U.S. multi-outlets for the 52 weeks ended Sept. 8, according to IRI.
