Bleach pregnancy test
This method is said to give the most accurate and quicker result than any other method.
Take a clean container and collect urine in it. Now add some bleaching powder to it and mix it properly to avoid lumps. If the mixture forms a foam or fizz, it means you are pregnant and if there is no foam, you are not pregnant.
Sugar pregnancy test
The easiest of all tests, this method was most widely used when there were no scientific pregnancy kits available.
Take one tablespoon of sugar in a bowl and add one tablespoon of urine to it. Now notice how sugar reacts after you pour urine on it. If the sugar starts forming clumps, it means you are pregnant and if the sugar dissolves quickly, it means you are not pregnant.
The hCG hormone released from the urine does not allow the sugar to dissolve properly.
Toothpaste pregnancy test
You can use any toothpaste but make sure it should be white in colour.
Take two tablespoons of white toothpaste in a container and add the urine sample to it. If the toothpaste changes its colour and becomes frothy, you are pregnant.
