Has anyone ever heard of a homemade pregnancy test made with household products? If so, could you tell me how to do it?

Hi,

I can't answer your question but if anybody does know I'd love to do it because I need to do a test and I can't afford one so this is a great question, hopefully some good answers, it'd be great if it worked. Well done for asking, I wonder what kind of products could you use, strange but could be brilliant!!!

I've heard of one, but I think you have to be like 5 months pregnant already, and I was told it's just a gender test. With crystal draino, mix equal parts urine and crystal draino. Brown for boy, And I've heard a lot for girl... White for girl, blue for not... but then I've heard blue for girl. So, I don't know... I've heard one with Pine Sol, but I don't know how to do it.

Dollar General has reliable pregnancy tests for $1. GO to planned parenthood or a crisis pregnancy center where its free. In this day and age to say you cant take a test beacuse you cant afford one is ridiculous and irresponsible

Your local health dept. offers a preg. test for free. So does planned parenthood, university's (in case you are a student,) and many emergency rooms. If you do not have the money to buy a test, call around and research the options in your area. There is always something available.

The sooner you find out whether or not you are pregnant, the sooner you can have prenatal care. THINK ABOUT IT!!!

If you can't afford a pregnancy test, how do you plan to afford a baby? Just curious. I don't mean to be judgemental, but it is a serious question to ask yourself.

I agree that if you think you are pregnant you need to find a way to take a test - planned parenthood or some other clinic. The sooner you get prenatal care, the better your chances of having a healthy baby. Good luck.

Melissa,
I'm curious how much stuff costs in England. Here a drug store pregnancy test is about 6-7 dollars.

Even if there was some homemade pregnancy tests.. I wouldnt trust it..

I would probably be curious so take the real thing first and then try the homemade one to see if it really worked!

Go to planned parenthood and get a free test that way you know its accurate.

First of all when the young lady who wrote about homemade pregnancy tests, I wrote back saying I had never heard of them, it's true I can't afford a test but none of you know my story, I now realise why teenagers ask not to be judged when they think they might be pregnant, nobody ever gives them a chance, as soon as the words I think I might be pregnant is said, you all jump on these young people who only come on here for advice and support saying not to be stupid and if they don't realise they can get pregnant from pre *** or anything like that, none of you have any time for them, I've read posts on here and everybody is so judgmental. I too was a girl that had pregnancy scares, I lost my viginity at 17 to a 41 year old man, I thought because I had finished my period that day I could have been pregnant, for weeks I was so scared, luckily all the time I never got pregnant, I got with my fiance whom I met on the Internet and because he has muscular dystrophy, I was told he could never have kids so we didn't use protection, a couple years later I got pregnant with our son when we didn't expect it to happen, the choices we had to make was horrible, we had to decide whether we had an abortion because of Mark's disabilty, we decided against it, I had a high risk pregnancy for nine months, everybody was against us and some still are. We've appeared in magazines, newspapers and on the telly because of our story ( Mark's the oldest living male in Britain, aged 32 ), I do not see myself as ridiculous and irresponsible because I can't afford a test, I do not work because of a disabilty I have, my fiance can't work due to being terminal, my MIL who we live with is also terminal, we're getting married in six weeks and the wedding is costing over 4,000, the tests over here cost over 12 and that's for one test, a lot more for two, I can't drive so that means I can not get to the Family Planning clinic unless my fiance's Mum takes me, we can afford kids as we already have one, I am not a student so I can't get money that way. I'm nearly 24 years old, I do not need to be preached to, I feel so sorry for the girls on here who ask a question and then get judged, think back to when you lot was young and didn't know much about sex, these girls are learning and they need support and care, please give them some or what is the point of a forum if you can't get help, I still do not know if I'm pregnant or not, I have no money as it's gone into the wedding and it's my MIL who helps me and my fiance, we hope to have another baby at the end of the year, we'll cope and in future please do not judge me or other girls, it's not nice especially if you have no where to turn.

I would have to agree. This person DID NOT say they couldn't afford a test, nor did he or she say that they thought they were pregnant. Maybe they were just curious. They didn't ask for someone's opinion on how to obtain a pregnancy test, so becoming judgemental is what is UNCALLED FOR. I can afford a test and I am also able to go out and get one, but that would be kind of cool to be able to tell with home products. I know people that have been trying for years. I can't even imagine how much they have invested in pregnancy tests. It would be great for them to be able to make their own. So, don't answer questions and become judgemental over questions not asked and information not offered.

Wow!!! That's waaaaay more than I thought an off the shelf test would be.

They are so inexpensive here some of the ladies buy more than one.

I've seen some that cost almost $20. Also, I am the one that first posted... I am a teenager and I could afford a test if I really, really thought I was pregnant. There is a chance that I might be, but I highly doubt it. In this town, it's not uncommon for a girl aged 13-19 to be pregnant. A lot of which had no pre-natal care and had healthy babies.

To chucksgirl and Melissa,

I didn't post anything before, but I read it. I am sorry that what the other ladies said offended you. I know the pressures of being a young woman. I am 22 years old right now. Just take care and don't hesitate to ask for more advise. Whenever there is a question asked that I can help with, then I do. However, I have never heard of a homemade pg test. Good luck. (My definition of luck is "Preparation meets opportunity".) Take care.

Sorry, I thought I would say a couple more things. First, I want to say that I send best wishes to you on your wedding and more importantly, your marriage.

The other thing is, I was thinking about this for a few minutes. But, I have to say that I appreciate the fact that I, as an American, can communicate with people in other countries such as Canada and countries in Europe. I think it is amazing and I hope you don't stop posting.

I am sure no one MEANT harm or hurt feelings. Take care.

I just thought I'd jump in on this one (ok, you can tell me to shut up) I've seen people being talked to in a condescending and rude manner (only once in awhile) and I have often thought that we don't know the story behind the post. Sometimes it isn't a teenager posting (and they do have the right to be treated with respect and dignity). I have seen people say, "if you don't have money then sell your computer and get rid of your internet service." Ok...I can even see that to a point. But do you know that alot of us get on these boards from work? Alot don't have internet service at home or a computer. And finally, I've heard so many of you say that if you want until you have money to have a baby, you'll never have one!

I am not picking on any one person here because to be honest, I don't remember who says what anymore! I think it is senility on my part! LOL But, I would ask that maybe before you post from your gut that you think about the post from your heart first.

I agree that in this day and age there really is not much excuse for ignorance, but to be honest, I've thought about this question myself. If you knew how much $ I've wasted on HPTs! LOL But sometimes you just want to know!!!!! LOL

Melissa, my heart goes out to you for the situation you are in. I am very thankful you have your MIL to help out. It sounds like you have a big heart. Congratulations on your baby too! Good luck with your wedding and I pray that somehow your fiance and his mom are NOT terminal...that something will happen (new treatments, new meds, whatever) that will change that.

EVERYONE! I'm not picking on anyone, ok? I'm not chastising either. Just thinking out typing loud???!!!

I read your reply and thank you all for who agreed with me. I don't want to insult people on here as some girls have helped me when I've needed it. It just gets to me when women don't get the support when they ask for it. My fiance and MIL are both terminal, Mark got told when he was 5 years old, he should have died when he was 16 but he survived against the odds because of a Nippy Ventilator, he recently got over pnemonia ( however you spell it ) and that was the third time he had it and survived every time. My MIL has an illness that tightens her skin so much she looks like a prune, it is horrible and it does something serious to her organs, she also has three heart problems, back problems that requires injections into her spine and both of these people in my life can die at any time, my Mum has already died recently from cancer and I miss her so much. I'm only saying people should listen before they judge because if I hadn't said about my story, you all would have most probably thought I was a teenager not knowing anything about sex, maybe if more time was made for girls who need to learn and given advice before they get pregnant, there might be less abortions.

I know a lot more about sex than people think. I also know a lot less than other people think. I know the consiquences of sex. IF I were to get pregnant, I would be happy because I know what happens to your child if you're not happy during your pregnancy. I really love the guy I'm with and I wouldn't get an abortion, and he wouldn't want me to. So, there's one less abortion.

Melissa, I know exactly what you are talking about because (on another screen name) I came here when I was pregnant and I was a teenager and I got nothing but critism. They are so clickish and sometimes just stuck up! not all but some of them!

they didn't even give me a chance. now, i knew this wouldn't be easy and that i would need help but thats what family is for, to stick by you and help you thru life. i'm a great mom to my son but i'm not going to sit here and claim to be THE BEST because i believe (as a mother) you learn something new every day in this profession. I'm growing with my son and he has made me a different person. i love him very much. one thing i have learned is to appreciate MY mom!!!!

Well, personally. Let's all be honest here, ok? I am 16. My boyfriend is 22. He is in the navy and is stationed overseas at the moment. We have been "together" for 3 years this december. Out of ALL that time, he recently came home this past month and we had sex for the first time together. Actually, it was more than once. We never used protection, and I'm not on birth control. He pulled out the first couple of times, but, I do realize you can get pregnant off of precum. We talked about it and asked each other would it really matter to us if i got pregnant? Our answer came up as a no because we have such a strong love that we are confident enough to say that we will be together for a long time. We've been through the hardest times and are still together...HAPPY! I know you all say that Young people are caught up in what they may think is love but, trust me, we know MORE than what you may think. Well, needless to say, I may be pregnant. I haven't been to the doctor yet. I am probably going to try and make an appointment for tomorrow or Tuesday. But, I just thought I would add my comments about this conversation. If I am pregnant, keith and I plan on getting married. He is released from the navy for good next year. Actually, to be more exact, 8 months and 27 days . . . today! So, if I am, he's going to send money for me to buy what i need, i.e.: new clothes, baby bed, stroller, etc... He's buying a house as soon as he gets home and I am moving in with him and we'll get married at the court house. I don't want anything too big. I'm not too picky. It would be nice to have a big wedding, but if I'm pregnant, there has to be a lot of sacrifices and I am mature enough to realize this. So, I did feel offended by the remarks that were made. Although I can afford a HPT. I work at a nursing home in town. But, it's ok. I know it wasn't MEANT to hurt anyone's feelings. but I think you should think before you speak/type. You could say the wrong thing to the wrong person at the wrong time and it could REALLY hurt them. bye you guys

Navylover, I'm not really responding to what you posted. I wanted to ask if your boyfriend has already found a job. I got out of the military a year ago and it took me about 8 mo to find one. Civilian pay is nothing like military if you have reached a good rank. However, even with all my military experience it was still hard. I just want to make sure he is prepared to get out

hey no he's not found a job yet. He was so busy while he was home doing stuff that needed to be done way before now, he didn't have time to look around. but, if i am pregnant, he's going to stay in the navy and go on base 2 hours away from me. He'll come home on weekends. If I'm not, I don't know what he wants to do yet. He has 6 months to decide. I haven't asked him lately because he's been under a lot of pressure right now. I remember him saying something a few weeks ago when he was on 30-day leave that he wanted to try to work at the post office. BUt, I've heard the tests they have to take is HARD. So, really, I don't know what he's wanting to do right now. The military pays really good and has good benefits along with it, but I think since his 5 years are almost up, he's going to want out for a little while. If I'm not pg, then (if he wants to reenlist), he'll wait until i graduate from high school and then reenlist in jacksonville, fl. so i can go with him and live with him. But, thanks for your concern.

Ok, I have to jump in for a sec. I responded earlier and gave ideas as to where to get free or reduced cost tests. It was not in response to the original "homemade" test comment, but to one by someone stating they had no money.

Aside from the rude comments, most people who post on here are trying to be helpful. If you do not want opinions put in, then state your question clearly. It is hard not to misconstrue if a post is vague. Most of the responses you get are coming from concern, so maybe we should be a little less touchy, and try to be a little more concise if you don't want people to misunderstand??

I wish everybody luck and health, and do not mean to offend. But with that said, if a 13 yr. old gets on here and goes on and on about unprotected sex repeatedly, is it really realistic for me to give her 2 thumbs up? I don't know, maybe I'm being overly sensitive...blame it on the hormones!

Ashley,
You seem like a very mature young lady for your age. I do have to ask you though, are your parents supportive of your relationship with this man? I'm sure you realize the age difference can be an issue as it is considered rape in many states for an adult man to have sex with a minor? Be careful darling, I would hate to see you, your boyfriend or a baby hurt because he could go to jail is the courts want to press charges.

well, thank you. I try to cope with things as best as i see fit. my family....hmmmm...haha. yea, that's a laugh. i live with my grandmother because my mother died when i was younger. it's my brother, grandmother, and I. well, she is a little upset. . . ok a lot upset. BUT!, I asked to go on birth control and she said no. I know that's not an excuse, but, I TRIED. right? that counts for something. Im sure it does. my aunt, who got pregnant at 15 and married at 13, is "disappointed" but ready for a new baby in the family. My brother thinks it would be cool to be called uncle. my cousin, of whom is like a mother to me, will help me 110%. She said as long as I stay in school, she'll pay for child care herself. So, there you go. I know he could get in trouble and so does he. But, he'll be home in less than 9 months. That means, if I am pregnant, then he'll be home right around time. But, thanks for your concern. write back

Ashley,

Hi.. first thing I want to say is please dont take anything I say the wrong way.. I am not trying to discriminate you.. It sounds like you are really in love I dont doubt that..but heres the thing please be very careful. I know from experience that it dont matter what you .. in other words it dont matter if you say its love or not..your bf can still get into tons of trouble.. If one person that finds out decided that they didnt like it.. and let me tell ya you dont have a choice and a voice to say it was consentual or that you love him. The court takes it from there and since you are considered a minor it is put in the states hands.. not your or your parents..the best thing that you could do is get married (if your parents will sign) now! Because the military probably wouldnt step in if from what they seen you were married possibly before you got pregnant. As long as you are married with you parents consent no one can do anything. I will also say that my dh is in the navy and if your bf has been in 5 years the worst thing he could do for himself, you and the baby is get out of the military. I just dont like to see anyone have to struggle all their life because of one wrong turn. The military has the best benefits...they will pay for all your medical if you get married all the babies medical.. you get your base pay and on top of that they give you BAH which is basic allowance for housing..or you can live on base..everything is cheaper..you get tons of benefits and I guarantee you that your baby would be taken care of... dont get me wrong I am not saying military people are rich because we are not even close but we have the things we need and dont have to worry about paying out extra for things like medical and housing. I do work.. but I do a Military Home Based Daycare...only keeping military kids at my home and I make good money doing that as well. You really should talk to your parents as well as your bf. If I were you I would also watch what you tell the doc.. even though its suppossed to be confidential.. they are required to tell some things. Good Luck

hey well, no i didn't think you were discriminating. sorry if it came off to you like that. yes we are in love. very much so. we are careful. yes i know he could be in trouble from this. the court system sucks doesn't it? haha. we can't get married right now because he is overseas. but, as soon as he gets home in 9 months, he's going to look for a job and then when that's settled, he's going to get a house. as soon as he gets settled in and everything like that, i'm going to move in. haha. so about that time, i should be 18. my birthday is in september so it'll be close. I told my grandma that i was moving in with him regardless of whether or not i was pregnant because i could NOT stay here. she just asked what happened to love and marriage first? i told her not to worry about that because we WOULD get married. We won't struggle. DOn't worry. I have a job and it pays PRETTY good for a 16 year old. ya know? the military does have pretty good benefits. well, thanks for your concern and please write back. i'm not trying to be rude, either

Yes sometimes the court system does suck..but it is to protect the young ones that are in situations that dont want to be in. No I didnt take anything you said as being rude. Just trying to offer some advice. Sorry you bf is deployed right now..that sucks. Before we married my dh took leave and we were together and I got pregnant then he had to leave and go overseas...sadly I had a miscarriage.. We were only 6 months away from being married. I guess someone somewhere knew it wasnt the right time even though we would not have gotten rid of the baby.

Hey guys, just to let you know, I'm from AL and the legal age of consent here is 16, and I'm about 90% sure that it is in GA, too, from friends that I have there. If that truly is the case, she and her boyfriend can't get into any trouble.

I find it odd, how many people are against the idea of a homemade pregnancy test, yet so many people have viewed this post.

Draino has never worked for anyone that I've known who have tried it.

This topic was veryyyyyyyy interesting. I wanted to know about the home pregnancy test, myself. I don't think that I am pregnant or anything, but I was just curious. And to be honest and realistic, I would have tried it, with or without money. Id's still like to know what it was about.

We all like to pretend that were not young once. So when people ask questions we act holier than thou, as if we haven't asked questions, or made wrong descisions. She just was curios, like soooooooooooo many who come to this board. No we don't have to pretend that what they are doing is right. But if you are not going to come from a supportive end, then come from a neutral end. I have asked questions and people have thrown a book at me, or answered in negative way. And yes, there have been positive feedback. Those were the ones that I would remeber if I was blessed with a child. Or my outcome came out the way I wanted it to.

Although there are some excellent posts, sometimes because people believe because they are older, and finally have become pregnant, they now have the power to look down, if those are the reasons. Please think before you advise. There will be questions asked from alllllllll angles. Some that will get on your nerves, but if you can't answer accordingly, don't answer.

Now, baby dust to everyone.

I'm surprised! I was wondering if there was a home made test just because My husband and I are trying to concieve again, and I thought it'd be cheaper to have something I could make in bulk. I can afford a test or two here and there, but I'm an inpatient woman and want to know asap, if it's negative, I end up taking another one just to be sure. With our first child, I was taking a test every two weeks, and I don't care how cheap you can buy them, that gets pricey! Please TRY not to judge others and belittle them for trying to save a few bucks that will maybe help pay for DIAPERS!!!

(*off of my soap box now*)

Hello! Melissa and Chucksgirl, I am sorry to hear that you have only recieved critisim and rude comments for your current situations. There are alot of women on this board who are supportive and understanding of your situations. I know that all of us make wrong choices in our lives and people are judgemental, you just have to be strong and hold your head high. I am not one who agrees that teens should be haveing sex or babies but it's not my choice. I can only say that it is hard to be a mom no matter how old you are and that young girls need to take care of themseleves so that they may finish school and maybe get a good job and have a better life for themselves that's all. I care about you young women and I just would hate to see you alone and raiseing a child alone, cause most young guys want the sex but not the child. I donot think that you are bad or stupid. Money will always be a problem unless you meet a rich guy or you yourself are wealthy. I would just advise you to seek what ever help there maybe out there to help you so that you will have some medical care and state help if provided where you are from ok. I know that sometimes it is embarassing to go to the state for help but you have to do whatever it takes for your baby's sake. ok take care and I hope that you find help soon
