9 Methods for Making an At-Home Pregnancy Test

1. Dandelion Leaves

The dandelion method has been used for hundreds of thousands of years and was a very popular method in ancient times to test for pregnancy. This method is simple and provides results quickly and effectively. To test for pregnancy using this popular method used for thousands of years, all that is needed is the leaves from the dandelion flower. The leaves should be cut cleanly off the plant and placed in a sterile plastic container.

Do not let the leaves come in contact with direct sunlight after you have cut them or placed them in the plastic vessel. This will make the test less effective and may cause false results. Once the leaves are in the plastic container, the woman should urinate directly on the leaves, preferably in the morning, and let them become completely saturated. After 10 minutes, the leaves should be checked. If there are red blisters that have formed on the leaves, this is a positive pregnancy result.

2. Bleach Indicator

The bleach indicator test is probably one of the most effective methods of testing for a pregnancy at home. This test is extremely easy and provides some of the best results known. To test for pregnancy using bleach, simply collect the first urine of the day and add a couple of tablespoons of bleaching powder to it. If you are indeed pregnant, the urine will start to pretty much immediately fizz and foam. If there is no reaction, you are more than likely not expecting a baby.

3. Collected Urine

The urine in the body changes considerably when pregnant, and some woman swear that simply collecting urine and looking for changes will be enough to tell if you’re pregnant. All that is necessary to do this do-it-yourself home pregnancy test is a container to put the urine in.

A bottle would work best, as will the first urine of the morning. Let the urine sit for 3-4 hours. After this time if a white film forms on the surface of the collected urine, this is probably a good indication that there is a positive pregnancy.

4. Toothpaste

Yes, toothpaste can actually be used as a home pregnancy test. If you care to use this tested method, white toothpaste is what provides results. All you need to do is add a few drops of your morning urine to a bit of white toothpaste. If the toothpaste turns frothy or blue in color after a bit of time, the chances that you are pregnant are pretty high.

5. Mustard Seed Powder

Nature provides a number of ways to treat many ailments and mustard seed is just one of nature’s miracles that happens to help test for pregnancy at home. Mustard seed powder is one of the best known methods for late or skipped periods and has been used for hundreds of years for this very matter.
