Bar sells pregnancy tests

Men have long been able to buy condoms in the bathroom at their favorite bars to prevent pregnancy. Now, women can buy a $3 kit from a vending machine to find out if they are actually pregnant!

A bar called Pub 500 in Mankato, Minnesota is the first bar known to sell pregnancy tests. The bar says it’s part of an effort to help prevent the consumption of alcohol while pregnant, according to the New York Times.

The bar installed the machine in mid-July, just before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a survey stating that one in 13 pregnant women reported consuming alcohol.

The newspaper reports that the bar sold about 12 tests in the first month.
