Homemade Pregnancy Test With Sugar: How To Make Home Pregnancy Test?

Home pregnancy tests are very popular nowadays. They are easy to make and they provide accurate results. You don’t need any special equipment or chemicals. All you have to do is add some ingredients and then wait for the result! That’s it!

The main thing you need to remember when making your own home pregnancy test is to follow these simple steps:

1) Choose a substance that will give positive results.

For example, if you want to use sugar, choose table sugar instead of honey. If you want to use alcohol, choose vodka instead of wine.

2) Add the substance into a small container and keep it somewhere out of reach (like in the fridge).

3) Wait for the results.

4) Repeat step 1 until all the substances give positive results.

5) Store the tested substance in a safe place away from children and pets.

6) Keep repeating steps 1 through 6 until you get all the substances that give positive results.

7) Use these substances to make other types of tests.

8) After testing, store them safely in a refrigerator or freezer so they won’t spoil too quickly!

All the types of at-home pregnancy tests that you can make at home are listed below.

Homemade Pregnancy Test With Toothpaste: How Does It Work?

Toothpaste is made up of three major components which are responsible for the whitening and cleaning power of this common product: fluoride, sodium hexametaphosphate, and silica. Sodium hexametaphosphate is a type of salt which is soluble in water. It is commonly used in the making of commercial pregnancy tests. As for silica, it helps make the toothpaste smooth and slippery. The exact role of fluoride in toothpaste is still a mystery!

There are two types of at-home pregnancy tests with toothpaste: one with regular toothpaste and one with baking soda and vinegar.

How To Make A Toothpaste Pregnancy Test With Regular Toothpaste?

You will need:

Toothpaste (any brand)

Towel or a flat surface

Watch or clock with a second hand

Instructions:

1) Get a flat surface and put a small amount of toothpaste on it.

2) Use the tip of your middle finger to create a small well (hole) in the toothpaste.

3) If you are testing with the first morning urine, go to step 4).

If you are testing with second morning urine, go to step 6).

4) For testing with first morning urine, urinate into a container.

5) When the toothpaste in the well is soaked, time how long it takes for the toothpaste to disappear from the well.

(This will give you the time when your urine became diluted enough with water for hCG to no longer be present).

6) For testing with second morning urine, collect your urine in a container, wait until there is enough and then urinate into the well.

Hold the container with the toothpaste in it in one hand and use your other to gently swirl it. After every swirl, look at the level of toothpaste in the container. If it drops steadily but slowly, then you are not pregnant.

If it drops quickly but then stays at the same level for a while, you are probably pregnant.

If it drops quickly to below the well and then drops slower, you are definitely pregnant.
