Firstly, finding out if you are pregnant or not comes with a price. Just to clarify, this refers to the nervousness while waiting for the results. Also, it costs money somewhere along the line. However, why not try some DIY pregnancy tests at home. According to some people, the toothpaste pregnancy test is also worth a go. But is it?
How to do the toothpaste pregnancy test
Just to point out this needs to be a sample from the beginning of your potty participation. Obviously, it is better to take a pee sample first thing in the morning.
Once you have braced yourself and ready for the pee-paste test, take a deep breath. Take the previously collected pee and pour it into the bowl which contains the toothpaste smear. Grab something like an old lolly stick or similar so that you can stir the mixture.

So, sit back and enjoy the moment, you are going to give birth to a little baby. Of course, if this is a pregnancy you don’t want, grab another cup of tea!
However, should the mixture become frothy with a notable colour change, you may be pregnant.
Other DIY pregnancy tests at home
Of course, the toothpaste pregnancy test is the one doing the rounds on the internet right now. However, there are a few other DIY pregnancy tests at home you can try. Here we list the other most used DIY pregnancy tests that others have tried.
Bleach pregnancy test
Again, watch for change of colour and frothing as this could also indicate you are pregnant.
If nothing happens, you are in the clear and of course, your wee is now sterile. Just ensure you dispose of the bleach carefully.
Sugar pregnancy test
Should the sugar just dissolve in the pee, you are probably not up the stick. However, if the sweet sticky solution forms lumps and clumps, brace yourself for the worst.
Other pregnancy tests at home
The above three pregnancy tests are the most common but there are others. For example, there is the vinegar pregnancy test. This, of course, is tested like the bleach test above. Then there is also the dandelion pregnancy test. Take some dandelion leaves from the garden (preferably ones growing in the shade) and pour on your pee sample. If there is no reaction then relax, you are probably not pregnant. However, should the leaves react somewhat, you may well be up the duff.
Unorthodox pregnancy tests
But what other tests are there to find out if you have a bun in the oven? How about the mayonnaise pregnancy test or maybe the mouthwash pregnancy test?
