Homemade Pregnancy test and their reliability

Homemade pregnancy tests have become popular because most women want to know whether they are pregnant as soon as possible because of various reasons and conditions associated with pregnancy. Homemade Pregnancy Test is a method of detecting pregnancy easily using products that can be easily found at home. As homemade pregnancy test is considered as one of the easiest and cheapest way to confirm pregnancy, many people rely on it. The main advantage of homemade pregnancy test is that they are really inexpensive than over the counter top commercial pregnancy test kits and are a great help to those women who cannot afford to use the available drugstore pregnancy test kits due to financial crisis. Again teen teenagers who have unsafe sex and are afraid of using the conventional test due to social and personal reasons use these methods. Also  there are some  women who test pregnancy with homemade pregnancy test as they feel curious to find how the test work as they might have read about it somewhere or heard about it from peers. However, what they fail to realize is that homemade pregnancy test are not at all reliable as they have not been proved with any kind of scientific explanations.

Homemade Pregnancy Test using Dandelion Leaves

Homemade Pregnancy Test using Dandelion LeavesThe most well known of all the available homemade pregnancy test is the dandelion leave test. For this homemade pregnancy test, leaves have to be collected from the plant stem. Then a sheet of plastic has to be placed in a location where the sun’s ray cannot reach the leaves as they need protection from direct sunlight. Now the tester has to saturate the leaves by urinating or pouring the sample of urine on it. The leaves have to thoroughly saturate by fresh urine in order to conduct this homemade pregnancy test. After a while, the leaves have to be checked for blisters. If reddish blisters appear on the leaves, then the result of this homemade pregnancy test indicates that the tester is pregnant. The red blisters on leaves usually appear between ten to thirty minutes.

Homemade Pregnancy Test Using Bleach

Bleach is a cleaning chemical that can also be used in homemade pregnancy test. This product helps to clean clothes via oxidation process. Homemade pregnancy test can be simply done by mixing urine to it. Only a cup of bleach is needed to conduct this homemade pregnancy test. If bubble comes out or bleach fizzes after adding urine in it, the homemade pregnancy test would indicate pregnancy. This happens because hormones increase when women conceive.

Homemade Pregnancy Test using Wheat and Barley

This homemade pregnancy test can be dated back to the ancient Egyptians. Egyptian women used to use this homemade pregnancy test to detect pregnancy. They used to urinate on wheat and barley seed and then closely monitor the growth of the seeds. They used to think that if the wheat seeds grow than the baby would be a girl and if the barley seeds grow then the baby would be a boy. This homemade pregnancy test was not only a test of detecting pregnancy but also a test for detecting the gender of the unborn child. In this homemade pregnancy test the seeds grow due to the amount of estrogen present in a pregnant woman’s urine.

Homemade Pregnancy test using Pine Sol

Homemade Pregnancy test using Pine SolAnother popular homemade pregnancy test requires using pine sol. Pine sol is a product that is made from pine essential oil. Again in this homemade pregnancy test, urine has to be mixed with pine sol sample. If any variation in color of pine sol occurs, or the liquid becomes fizzy and frothy, then the homemade pregnancy test result would indicate pregnancy.

Are these homemade pregnancy tests reliable?

The test result found by conducting homemade pregnancy test are not at all reliable as they have not been proved scientifically. The results also face different form of subjectivity as a women who has been craving to be a mother believe to see change of color in homemade pine sol test whereas someone who is not eager to become pregnant might believe to see the result in different light. Commercial off the shelve pregnancy test kits are scientifically proven to be accurate and therefore are more reliable. If financial problem is an issue and one cannot purchase the drugstore pregnancy test kits, one can go to community health clinics and other health care offices as many places offer free pregnancy tests nowadays. We can conclude saying this that commercial over the counter top pregnancy tests are more reliable than the homemade pregnancy test methods. Therefore one should not rely solely on the homemade pregnancy test result and consult a physician as soon as possible to become sure about pregnancy.

    I had been have irregular periods and having pregnancy symptoms. I had just done the bleach test and it fizzed and bubbled right off, then I done the pine sol and the color was lighter than orignial color. Does that mean I am pregnant?

  2. Marie

    I have also tried those two methods ans the bleach fizzed up then exploded and the pinsol looked like mucuse . Are you pregnant ? I seen that you posted this a couple of months ago .

    • Babymomma16

      Same for me.

  3. Christina

    I also did both tests and the bleach one fizzed like crazy and the pine-sol also looked like mucus! Did either of you get a real test done after these and were you pregnant?

  4. SueAnn

    I am going to give the bleach test a try – as Idon’t have pine sol in the house. I have Lysol instead (wonder if it would work the same). I’ll post back my results….

  5. Jessica SB

    Waiting to see if anyone found out they are pregnant yet????

  6. lynn30

    I did the bleack and omg!!! It foamed up like a shaken beer!!!!! And I thnk I’m pregnant, my body has some change and I feel a lil tingling in my breast

  7. Kristyne

    I tried the bleach earlier–it started bubbling, then looked like boiling water, then completely foamed all over! All within like 30seconds.
    Ive been feeling like I am ALOT lately, so not sure if I really am yet, but all I can do now is wait….

  8. 008

    Really feel like an idiot. Boobs have grown bigger and heavier. Been urinating way too much. I am late. Took the bleach test this morning, boy did it foam and the foam subsided then started fizzing.
    CONFUSED. PLEASE HELP

  9. Jenicka Lopez

    Not sure if I’m pregnant I tried the pine sol one the pine sol was the brown one and once I mixed it with my urine it turned white sortah like cloudy creamy. Does that mean I’m pregnant ?

    • jamie

      U all are retarded lol…. bleach will make anyones urine fizz and foam. This is a myth hahaha

      • Kristina

        It is not a myth, it does work. all urine will fizz a bit yes but if it is looking like a bomb then you are pregnant. It is better to mix outside due to the fumes so please be safe. The futher along you are the more it will fizz due to the chemicals in your body. These test has been used for years when woman would get a positive result “before all the great test we have now” there doctor would come with a rabbit and inject it with the womans blood if it died she was pregnant. now if you get a positive go to your doc or get a home test. Yes i have done my research and done my test. dont knock the methods of people that had to use there brains to get results.

      • Brook

        Are you sure it’s a myth ?

        • cindy

          I feel very pregnant, I really do. So i tested with bleach and I go soooo excited bc it frizzed for like 3 secs then it rose like crazy, causing to spill over the cup, then I decided to test my husband and well i have to say that he is pregnant too lol same thing happened:( so who knows

      • Relayna

        Uhm.. actually your wrong. I tried it and it fizzed everywhere. Had my sister try it.. It did nothing at all. Just saying.

  10. nomie

    @jamie dd yoz fizz n foam?

  11. brittany

    About the bleach pregnancy test.
    Your urne has amonia in it which causes a chemical reaction to the particals n the bleach and when it fizzes up it causes mustard gas which is deadly. Id advise not to do that.

  12. mecha

    I did the bleach test too and it foamed like shook up pop when my husband gets home im Going to make him pee and do them both hope i am we have been trying for a few months

  13. Deanna

    Just so you all know, bleach and amonia mixed together can cause death!!! Urine contains amonia. So the fizz and bubbles you all are seeing is actually a sleeping gas! Watch out yall

    • Tigra-Lee Campbell

      Mustard gas…..

  14. Dianna

    Everyone’s welcome to their own opinions, but I have tried this & know many other’s who have tried it & if interpreted correctly, it works! It is true that urine has ammonia in it & bleach will fizz when any urine is added, but, when urine containing HCG is added, it will fizz, then foam up & stay that way for quite awhile. Obviously, be cautious about doing this test in a well ventilated area. For those who knock this, if you don’t believe in it, then don’t try it. But for the many who are curious, due to lack of finances, convenience, or sheer science of doing the experiment, then go for it! Put 1 cup of bleach in a cup, urinate in a separate cup (don’t pee directly into the bleach) then slowly add slight pour (1/2 – 1 ounce or so) then wait for the results! There will be no deadly gas fume, or a catostropic explosion, so need not worry….Doesn’t hurt to try it. I did & I’m a Med Student & about to become a Dr.

    • Angelina Cunningham

      i just tried the bleach test and as soon as my pee hit the bleach it foamed and stayed that way for along time does that mean im pregnant?

  15. Dianna

    Women have used the Home-made Bleach Pregnancy Test for years. The way the test works is that when urine containing HCG is poured into the Chlorine Bleach, the bleach reacts to a protein in the HCG, hence, the fizz & foam that’s created. It’s a cool experiment to do before you’re able to get to your OB/GYN for confirmation.

  16. Bobby

    Has anyone taking th bleach test then took an actual pregnancy test to prove it I really want to try this :) x

  17. mommy2be2013

  19. Stephanie

    My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant. I missed my period then a week later only bled for like 2 days. Been having lower back pains.
    I decided to try the bleach and urine test and all it did was get bubbly. What does this mean?

  20. Nicolet

    The bleach test does no t work, I tried it two years ago and I don’t think it takes two years to conceive a baby; the bleach just leaves a horrible smell in the bathroom, but I am still curious about the pine sol test.

  21. Lisa

    So I didn’t miss my period. Came right on time and ended on time. My sore breast went away but the cramps and bloating stayed. I did the bleach and pine sol for fun. The pine sol went cloudy and the bleach bubbled went into form. I got curious so I went to the dollar store for a htp. Lol it came out positive even those I had an on time period that was heavy(changed into 3 pads a day) ! So the bleach and pine sol works

    • jeanie

      Hey I was just wondering did the pine Sol turn milky white and had bubbles?

  22. Tori

  29. nina

    I did a pregnancy test aswell and I’m not pregnant. Don’t waste time on this silly games.

  30. Sha Ormiston

    whenever someone is looking for suggestions, I would hit up THE pregnancy home place

  31. Laura

    On the bleach one I tried it. Afterwards I did take an actual test that proved positive. It’s not just the boom of a fuzz that matters its also color. Mine turned bright yellow and foamed. (I’m not very far along at all) and my 14 year old little cousins turned a dark brownish yellow. So look for that as well. Hope that helps =}

  32. Lauren

    I thought I was pregnant because I was 11 days late. I had a pregnancy test but I didn’t want to take it yet. So I went online and found this. I tried it and it really did foam all the way up to the rim of the glass! and then later that day I took my pregnancy test and it came out positive. I’m going to say that this test really does work.

  33. will

    I’m a dude and I ppored some of my pee in bleach to conduct a negative result and it blew up in my face- bleach is a myth

  34. tierra walls

    I just did the bleach test, it instantly foamed shot right to the top I wasn’t even done pouring my urine!!the foam just sat there like a fresh cup of beer. I went to the hospital got many test all negative except a blood test, but my body is cramping and no period for a month all home test say negative…. don’t know what else to do!

    Yes the bleach test is dangerous… please go outside and do it. Make sure you are standing kind of away and don’t inhale the fumes.. I did it while I was covering my mouth but still smelt it! It did foam and froth up so I’m going to get a test to be sure.. good luck to all of you!
