Let’s read on to know about some homemade pregnancy tests which will help you determine the pregnancy.

A procedure to detect and confirm pregnancy using pregnancy strips was developed by Margaret Crane in 1968. Millions of women today use the test to confirm their pregnancies. Though the pregnancy strip is easily available at the chemists, a good gynaecologist would always recommend a blood test to confirm the pregnancy.

But before you raise your hopes, celebrate and rush to a gynaecologist, here are a few pregnancy tests that you can make and perform at home, using simple ingredients found in your kitchen. These homemade pregnancy tests may not be completely accurate and show accurate results, but you can surely try them once before taking medical tests.

Homemade Pregnancy Test

  • Dandelion Leaves

As an early pregnancy test, Dandelion leaves can be effectively used to confirm the pregnancy. Cut a few Dandelion leaves and place them in a plastic container. Make sure it does not come in contact with direct sunlight after this. Drink plenty of water before you are ready for the test.

Once, you feel a full bladder; urinate on the leaves till they get completely submerged in the urine. Check after ten minutes and if there are red bumps on the leaves, you are pregnant.

  • Pine Sol

Here’s another free pregnancy test using a home made solution. To make it easy for you to understand, let me tell you, Pine Sol is basically a housing cleaning agent containing Pine Oil. Most of the people have Pine Sol at home for cleansing and various other uses.

Now, mix your fresh urine with Pine Sol solution, wait for a few seconds/minutes and see for any colour changes. If the mixture changes colour, you are soon going to be a mother.

  • Using Bleach

make your own pregnancy test
Bleach pregnancy test is one of the most effective homemade Pregnancy test that I have personally used it during my college time. Simply mix bleach and urine in a plastic cup. If this mixture starts foaming, then motherhood has embraced you!

Share the good news with your loved ones and celebrate. Do carry out this test outdoors because the fumes released from bleach pregnancy test can make it too stuffy for you to breathe inside the bathroom.

If you find it difficult to do this outdoors, fill a jar with with your fresh urine separately and take the jar outside. Proceed with the above process then.

  • Toothpaste Test

Homemade pregnancy test with toothpaste is probably the easiest method according to me because the materials you will require are right in front of you, probably, if you are reading this in your bathroom.

Ever wondered how toothpaste can be used for confirming a pregnancy? As an early pregnancy test, any white toothpaste can be used for this test. Mix a spoon full of white toothpaste and urine in a plastic container to make your own pregnancy test.

If the tooth paste turns blue, then you are soon going to feel the baby moving inside you. That deserves a big smile, or a cause for worry, if it is unwanted?

  • Vinegar Solution

Take some vinegar in a plastic cup and mix it with your fresh urine. This is another easy homemade pregnancy test with vinegar. There might be some bubbling, and you should not bother about it. If the colour of liquid changes from its original colour when you mixed, it means that you should expect a baby. A perfect free pregnancy test, this homemade pregnancy test with vinegar has been in use since the ancient times when there were no traces of medical technology.

  • Soap Water

If you are not having bleaching powder at the moment, you can use soap water to test pregnancy as well. It is not as effective as bleach, but can definitely be given a try.

Take your first morning sample of urine in a bowl and mix the lather of soap foam in it. If the solution bubbles up, you maybe pregnant. The only reason I have used “may be” in this test is because not many have found this to be very accurate but it is worth the try for an instant curiousness.

  • Sugar Test

This homemade pregnancy test with sugar is best tried with the first urine of the day. In a bowl, add two to three spoons of sugar (the small crystals, not powder) and urinate on it. If it does not dissolve and forms clumps, then, you can confirm your pregnancy.

This is another easy and free method to test pregnancy at home. Also, this method has proved to be 97.6% accurate, so I would suggest you pretty ladies to try a couple more methods from rest of the list of verify it.

  • Mustard Powder

This early homemade pregnancy test is also very effective in ascertaining pregnancy. If you have skipped your periods and are suspecting a pregnancy, fill a bath tub with hot water and add freshly ground mustard powder to it. Now soak yourself in it for half an hour or so. Take a plain water shower after this.

Now, if you get your periods in a day or two, then your period may have been delayed by other reasons and you should see a good doctor for that. But if there is still no sign of your periods, then chances are that you are pregnant and should be preparing for this new phase of your life.

  • Tuna Juice and Vinegar

Make your own pregnancy test with Tuna juice and Vinegar.

Mix ¼ Cup of Tuna Juice to ¼ cup of Vinegar in a plastic cup. Now urinate in a separate cup and add this fresh urine to this mixture. Wait for a few minutes till the colour starts changing (you should hope it doesn’t if it is unwanted pregnancy).

If the colour has changed to an orange-yellowish hue, then the test is negative. But if hints of green appear and the mixture takes a greenish tinge, then the pregnancy is confirmed. This is an easy and early homemade pregnancy test that is very effective and accurate.

  • Urine Itself

Collect your urine in a jar or a bottle. Make sure the bottle is resting on a flat surface and do not touch or shake it at all. After 24 hours, if you a see a thin white layer on the surface of your urine, the test is positive and confirms your pregnancy. If nothing shows up on the top layer of your urine, the test is negative and you are not pregnant.

This is the third most easiest test of all the above I have mentioned. You require no extra materials or ingredients, just the patience of 24, curious hours.

How to increase the accuracy of the homemade pregnancy tests

  • Always prefer to use the morning sample of the urine as the tester because it is less diluted. The more concentrated the urine, the better the results.
  • Be careful while using products like vinegar and bleach. The strong stench of these ingredients may cause suffocation. You should always carry out these tests in the open.
  • Though these free pregnancy tests have been used for over the ages, do not rely on them alone. The positive indicator of these homemade pregnancy tests is just a notion that you can confidently see a doctor now.
  • Whichever method you choose , make sure that you try it over a flat surface and don’t shake the samples in any homemade pregnancy tests that you would choose.
  • Use plastic containers only.
  • Dispose the plastic containers or jars that you may have used immediately after the completion of the test.

    • I have been wondering the same. When I do the toothpaste one am i supposed to mix it with a spoon? And if so how long do I have to?

      • Hi I’m 5 days late I’ve been extremely wet down there had some clear white discharge no odor tho been craving panda express noodles and taco back pain I took vinger test it turned really clear even tho my pee was light already had two Lil bubles is that a pos

  1. I haven’t had my period in like 3 months. I am not stressed but I am really worried. I don’t want my parents to find out. I haven’t done it either. What do I do?

    • When you say you haven’t done ‘it’, do you mean sex? There’s many reasons as to why you might not be having your period other than being pregnant. For example, obviously when you’re in your teenage years, your period isn’t always regular as your body is still developing. I had gone up to 4 months without mine at one stage. After that, your weight (overweight and underweight), excessive exercise, stress, a byproduct of some birth controls, etc. can lead to you missing your period. I would recommend talking to your parents & maybe seeing a doctor if you’re still worried.

  2. is it possible to perform any of these tests before my period ? or should I wait till my period time comes first? and when is the earliest time to do the test at and get a possible result?

    thank you

  4. I did the bleach sugar and toothpaste test bleach bubbles for ever and sugar clumb up and the toothpaste started to turn every thing blue and I did a soap test and it was bubbly but I took a pregnancy test came out negative ????

      • Me and My Boyfriend constantly have sex and he always cums inside me but i still haven”t gotten pregnant yet and I am starting to worry. Me and him are wanting to have a baby and we’re are trying really hard but so far all of our pregnancy tests came out negative and my doctor isn’t telling me if I am able to produce a baby or not. I’m really sad because I’ve been longing for a baby and for me to just keep trying and trying, just makes it seem like I am never gonna be able to produce a baby. I mean I have the money and a house and EVERYTHING but for me unable to have baby just isn’t fair. I mean me and my boyfriend constantly have sex at least 10 times a day and we always try new positions and everything but nothing seems to work. I don’t know, should I just give up and stop this baby-fever nonsense or should we keep trying and hope for a miracle?

        • i think you should keep trying and not lose hope. Also, time you love making very well. Once you know your ovulation days, it should be easier for you to get pregnant. Try and use all the methods for detecting your ovulation days, for eg, temping, checking your cervix position and cervical mucus etc. It’ll happen for you. Have hope and believe in God

    • I believe you should contact your dr. Unless he is a medical that’s the only reason she may no that and even then unless she knows your body she can not tell you much.

  16. Good afternoon!

I know my period can be delayed for days and weeks because I’m breastfeeding but lately I’ve been feeling nauseous and having vivid dreams. I took a test two days ago bought from a dollar store and it said positive. I want to know if the breastfeeding cause false positive. Please help it means tons for me. So I can fix my doctor’s appointment. Thank you

    • Breastfeeding wouldn’t cause a false positive, but it does make you more fertile than average. Hopefully this helps, good luck in whatever hopes you have

I’ve been craving garlic like crazy. I never crave garlic. Please help, I’ve talked to anyone and everyone. Thank you

    • That bleach test is crap — COME TO FIND OUT, URINE ALWAYS FOAMS IN BLEACH! Maybe, when you’re pregnant, it will foam like something crazy or something, idk. But it scared me! Try another test for sure. The one you got at Walmart is more than likely accurate.
