My Homemade Pregnancy Test


Homemade pregnancy test with vinegar

By putting your urine into a small cup of white vinegar, you are expected to be able to predict pregnancy. Furthermore, there is absolutely no study available to point out exactly how much urine as well as how much vinegar to use to make this test work. The proportions are unidentified, which means you may not get a precise result if you were to use too much vinegar and not enough urine, or vice versa.

The waiting time between adding your urine to the color and the vinegar change in the mixture is also unknown. Some at-home pregnancy tests work as many as six days before your missed period, but there is no sign that this homemade test has the same level of sensitivity.


It is cheap and convenient to test for pregnancy using homemade pregnancy tests, but it is not the best method. With homemade pregnancy tests, the possibilities of a false positive or a false negative is much higher.

Are Homemade Pregnancy Tests Trustworthy?

Some of the biggest disadvantages to homemade pregnancy tests is the lack or absence of clear guidelines. Home pregnancy tests that can be purchased from the drug store are more trustworthy and have clear guidelines on how to use and how much time it is likely for the kit to take to show the result. Without any guidelines precisely specified, one might get a negative test even, when she is pregnant.
