Have anyone tried the home made pregnancy testing before like the bleach pregnancy test and the sugar and toothpaste etc.

Anyone that is pregnancy tried them and they worked? See them everywhere just curious if they are legitimate?

I've never heard of this. Why would you bother when reliable tests are cheap and readily available?

If just saw a post saying that if you pee in a pot with some white toothpaste... if your pregnant then it fizzes and froths and if your not then the toothpaste stays the same.
2 ladies who are pregnant 27 weeks and 32 weeks on the page posted pics and it fizzes and frothed. Some one yet to do it who isn't xx

Can you imagine all the posts on here?

Would you say this pissy toothpaste is frothing? I used FMU and took the picture after 1 minute.

I'm not pregnant. Really want to try this but my toothpaste is blue. Is that no good?

I'm not pregnant. Want me to go and try it?

Funnyfarmer Fri 12-May-17 21:52:18

Yes.*@CaulkheadNorth*. I'm really interested to see if it works!

Mumofawarrior12 Fri 12-May-17 21:54:08

Yeah go try it hun.
No apparently blue or stripped doesn't work x

Used Colgate white toothpaste. It frothed a little but no fizzing.

It was possibly one of the oddest things I've done in the name of MN.

Imagine if you was actually pregnant and that the way you found outgrin

friend: what are you doing

Me: ah, you know, just pissing on some toothpaste to prove it's not an indicator of pregnancy

Friend: I think we've drunk too much wine.

I've just done it with Sainsbury's own brand whitening toothpaste, it frothed and fizzed a lot.
I don't think I'm pregnant!

Mumofawarrior12 Fri 12-May-17 22:06:18

I done it before and mine didn't do anything which is probably correct.
Got a possible early bfp earlier tho or could be a evap line... but if I am early then that's probably why it didn't do anything x

the goings on in MN world! grin

I'm not using it as a method at all I have pregnancy tests and I'm not pregnant either I just said I was curious if it actually works. I've seen that bleach and urine doesn't react well when your pregnant so wanted to know if pregnant women have tried and worked?

kiwi10 Fri 12-May-17 22:17:03

Haha I tried the toothpaste but it didn't work!!

The bleach worked though my urine fizzed and over flowed the cup with foam and got hot? I took a pregnancy test came back negative Im so unsure!

kiwi10 Fri 12-May-17 22:20:38

I check out people's videos on YouTube and the comments after stating they was pregnant

CaulkheadNorth Fri 12-May-17 22:26:43

I just tried arm and hammer toothpaste. It fizzed and frothed a lot. No sex for over a year but if the toothpaste says I'm pregnant who am I to disagree?

SnapJack68 Fri 12-May-17 22:33:58

Hahaha caulkhead your drunken evening sounds so much fun. .. If I was there I would be piss ing on toothpaste too as I am pregnant so could have a comparison!

I only have colgate toothpaste with little square bits in though or tesco brand baby toothpaste that's blue and sparkly

CaulkheadNorth Fri 12-May-17 22:39:26

snap try it! I got the friend to join in but she isn't pregnant either. However neither frothed at all for her so maybe it's just hormones or something?

Funnyfarmer Fri 12-May-17 22:54:30

@caulkhead. I think you are pregnant. And due around Christmas time.
Obviously god struggled to find a virgin on mn.
If the Lord was looking for a holy than tho mother for his child. Then where better place look than mngrin

I'm preaching at church on Christmas Eve this year. I feel an immaulate conception would be a great sermon illustration. I'll suggest it to the bishop.

SnapJack68 Fri 12-May-17 23:49:17

I had to wait til the DH was asleep or he may have walked in and thought I had lost the plot entirely

Right well colgate max fresh with crystals says.... I am not pregnant! No frothing or fizzing. What the hell is the pretend hyperemesis playing at!

Bit paranoid now despite being 19 weeks and looking the size of a small whale and having movements 😂😂😂 I need some beach dammit
