Home Pregnancy Test With Toothpaste Positive
| Toothpaste Pregnancy Test ..Is That Positive? It�s not a commonly known method. Some women
swear by it, while others balk at the idea of toothpaste announcing their pregnancy status.
Do it yourself home pregnancy tests are growing in popularity and the toothpaste pregnancy
test is no exception. It costs very little and takes very little time. WHAT IS THE TOOTHPASTE PREGNANCY TEST? This homemade test uses a woman�s urine
to determine whether or not the pregnancy hormone is present. This test requires plain
toothpaste since colors or flavors could change the results. It was often used decades ago
when pregnancy tests weren�t easily found in stores, especially for women living in
rural settings. HOW DOES IT WORK? The toothpaste pregnancy test works by mixing
urine with toothpaste and waiting a specific time to see what happens. Depending if it
is a negative or positive result, the toothpaste will react differently to the urine. If positive,
the toothpaste should become frothy and even turn a bluish color. If nothing changes once you mix in your urine,
the test is negative. IS THE TOOTHPASTE PREGNANCY TEST ACCURATE? While it may not be the absolute best way
to determine if you are pregnant or not, it is a quick and easy method which may give
an answer until you can seek medical advice. Some women have done it side by side with
other women to see if the results would vary. Also, it is important to keep in mind that
even medical pregnancy tests from the pharmacy aren�t always accurate. A blood test at
your doctor�s office is the best confirmation of pregnancy. USING TOOTHPASTE Toothpaste onto a toothbrush Toothpaste is an easy ingredient to create
a homemade pregnancy test since it is found in every bathroom within every household.
It is critical that only plain white toothpaste is used for the toothpaste pregnancy test.
Gel toothpaste and the kind with baking soda or flecks of sparkle aren�t a good choice. Also, steer clear of any toothpaste with color
added since this will affect your test results. Exposure to other chemicals or soaps should
be avoided as well, especially in the containers you use to collect your urine and for the
toothpaste. STEP-BY-STEP METHOD Gather the supplies needed: two clean containers
or cups, a clean stir stick, a clean medicine dropper (if available), plain
white toothpaste, and a timer. When you wake up, go to the bathroom in one
of the clean containers to collect your first-morning urine. First-morning urine should have the
highest amount of HCG hormone, which is what is in your body if you are pregnant.
Squirt a teaspoon sized amount of toothpaste into the other clean container.
Using the medicine dropper, take up some of your urine and add it to the toothpaste. About
an equal amount of urine to toothpaste. If you aren�t using a dropper, you can pour
your urine in carefully and slowly to the proper amount.
Plastic cupsStir the toothpaste/urine mixture with the clean stir stick.
Set your timer for about three minutes and wait.Set your timer for about three minutes
and wait. After the three minute mark, have a look at
the mixture and note any changes, including froth and color.
Positive tests are indicated by bubbling, frothy and/or a blue or bluish color to the
toothpaste. Negative tests are read if nothing at all happens to the toothpaste/urine mixture.
Follow up with a medical professional to confirm or deny the results and get further advice
on how to proceed. DURATION AND OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES You shouldn�t let this test sit for too
long since most urine will eventually froth up or bubble once mixed with toothpaste. A
suitable duration to allow for test results would be between three to five minutes maximum.
After that time frame, it is a good idea to discard of the containers and not look for
further results. A homemade toothpaste pregnancy test can be
a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to find out if you are indeed expecting. You don�t
need to look hard to find supplies, and you don�t need any special knowledge or education.
Plus, it hardly takes any time at all. It is a good idea to take the test only when
you have a suspected late period to avoid an early false negative result since the pregnancy
hormone builds up in your body over time. If you are using household containers to collect
your urine and to mix the toothpaste mixture, it is best to use glass or disposable, good
plastic cups. This will prevent other chemicals or soaps from tainting your results. It also
makes clean up a lot easier. Glass containers won�t absorb your urine, so they can easily
be washed and re-used.
