pregnant 350x219 - How to test from pregnancy using ten homemade remedies

Here are 10 DIY pregnancy tests you can try at home. They are perfectly safe.

1. Sugar

Put one tablespoon of sugar in a bowl and pour one tablespoon of the collected urine sample on the sugar, wait and watch.

Positive Sign :
The urine of pregnant women contains the Hormone HCG (Human chorionic gonadotropin). This hormone prevents the sugar from dissolving, and you will notice that the sugar will not readily dissolve and will form clumps instead. This is a clear sign of pregnancy.

Negative Sign :
If the sugar readily dissolves in the urine, it means that the urine does not contain HCG and therefore there is no pregnancy.

2. Toothpaste Pregnancy Test :
White toothpaste is preferred as the additional components of coloured toothpaste may interfere with the results.

Place two tablespoons of toothpaste in the bowl, add a tablespoon of the collected urine sample, wait and observe.

Positive Sign :
In case of pregnancy, the toothpaste will react with the urine change colour and may also turn frothy. The colour change should usually result in the toothpaste getting bluish.

Negative Sign :
In the case of negative pregnancy, the toothpaste would not react with the urine at all.

Caution :
While this test is useful and can be easily done at home there are certain drawbacks. For one, there are no prescribed guidelines to how much urine needs to be added to the toothpaste. Secondly, the time it takes for the reaction could vary.

3. Soap Pregnancy Test :

Place the soap in the bowl, pour two tablespoons of urine on the soap and observe.

Positive Sign :
If the soap froths and bubbles appear then it is likely that you are pregnant.

Negative Sign :
If there is no pregnancy there would be no reaction between soap and the urine sample.

4. Shampoo Pregnancy Test :

Put two drops of shampoo in a clean bowl, to this add some water to form a soapy solution, whisk gently to avoid foaming. Now add a few drops of the collected urine and observe.

Positive Sign :
If the shampoo solution begins to froth or forms bubbles it is a sign that you may be pregnant.

Negative Sign :
If there is no reaction you can safely assume that you are not pregnant.

Caution :
Mixing shampoo and water to form a soapy solution without frothing is tricky as the presence of froth can interfere with the results.
