Pregnancy is a fab experience in women. They eagerly wait to confirm the pregnancy and declare the arrival of their bundle of joy to the world. Before heading to your doctor to confirm your pregnancy, you can rely on a few homemade pregnancy tests to confirm the good news. It is true that there are various commercial pregnancy test kits available in the market. But as you know, natural methods are always cost-effective and you can maintain your privacy. Here, you can learn everything you need to know about homemade pregnancy tests.

Bleach Test
What you need is a cup of bleach and a clean container to collect the urine sample. But you need to be careful while doing the bleach test. Do it in an open space.
Take 1 cup of bleach in a bowl and add your urine sample to it. Mix them well. If it forms a foam, congrats! You are expecting!

Toothpaste Test
The simple white toothpaste is apt for the test. Do not choose colored or gel toothpaste.
Mix your urine sample with 2 tablespoons of toothpaste in a container. If the color of the paste changes to blue, the result is positive. Well done, you and your partner have done a good job!

Sugar Test
Take 3 teaspoons of sugar in a bowl. Add your urine sample into it. If you are comfortable, you can directly urinate in it. Wait for five minutes. If the sugar remains there without dissolving, it indicates pregnancy. You have a good reason to feel elated!

Soap Test
Collect your urine sample in a bowl and add soap water to it. If bubbles are formed as a reaction, then your test is positive.

Latch Test
Get hold of a latch to conduct this test. Well, a latch may not be easily accessible for many. For those who can get a latch, this test will be effortless.

Keep the latch in a container. Add your urine sample into the container and wait for three hours. After the wait, if you see the impression of the latch at the container’s base, well-done girl! You can see your bundle of joy in nine months.
When To Take These Tests

Ever wondered how do these tests work? All these tests detect the presence of a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone is produced by the placenta shortly after you get pregnant. And its level increases rapidly in the body in the first few days of pregnancy. To get an accurate result, you should use the first urine sample of the day for the tests.

Pregnancy tests may not show the right result in the early days of pregnancy.
