5 natural ways to take a pregnancy test
It is common thinking that commercial tests are more affordable and are easily available whereas natural tests cost you a lot of money. The truth is that natural tests made at home cost practically nothing. Another reason for homemade remedies is that you can hide your pregnancy from people whom you do not want to tell.
Pregnant women have high levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) which is confirmed by tests. Some women ask when to take pregnancy test. The answer to this is when you have the symptoms of pregnancy; you need to take a pregnancy test.
Toothpaste is a household item that is used every single day by everyone. If you feel that you may be pregnant, then add a little bit of urine to your toothpaste. If the color of the toothpaste changes from its normal color and turns a blue color or has bubbles, it is likely that you are pregnant.
This test may take a few tries as well as some time thus the key is to remain calm and patient.
Sugar is another item that is always in our kitchen. This test is cheap and very effective. It also requires a few tries to get it right, but it is worth the struggle. This test should be done first thing when you wake up in the morning so that you have enough and concentrated urine.
For this test, you need 2 to 3 tablespoon of sugar and a little amount of urine in a bowl and mix them together. If the sugar begins to dissolve in the urine mixture, then it shows that you may not be pregnant. On the other hand if the whole mixture clumps together then it shows that you are definitely pregnant.
Another test is using soap to confirm your pregnancy. In this method, you need to take your bar of soap and put a little amount of urine on the bar and look at what happens. You should see bubbles on the bar of soap. If that’s the case, then it means that you are probably pregnant.
Yes, you read it right! Dandelions are very reliable for this test. If you have a few dandelions in your garden, then this is the test for you. Take out the stems of the dandelions and put the leaves on a plastic sheet and away from the sun.
When you need to urinate, add a small amount of urine on the leaves and make sure that the leaves are completely soaked in the moisture. Check the leaves every other while. If the leaves turn reddish, then it is likely that you are pregnant.
5. Liquid Bleach
If you are not getting a positive result but are positive about being pregnant, then you can also use liquid bleach. For this test, you need to add less than half the cup or just half cup of bleach in a container and add urine into the mixture. If you see bubbles and hissing sounds, then it is likely that you are pregnant.
These tests are very cost effective and can easily be done at home. However, you still need to confirm your pregnancy with a real pregnancy test and confirm with a gynecologist who would want to run a few tests and rule out any congenital malformations.
