Best Homemade Pregnancy Test
There are still a lot of women who are not comfortable with over the counter test kits and still prefer the ancient homemade options. Like the one which is most common homemade pregnancy test is that uses a cup of bleach. How that test is performed is that the woman need to take some bleach in a cup and then drop some of her urine on to that bleach and if in case the urine turns into a foam than the woman is pregnant otherwise not. It just requires only a couple of drops of urine.
Another homemade test which is believed to be accurate is the use of dandelion leaves. If a woman is pregnant than her urine would change the color of dandelion leaves. However irrespective of the type of test being used we advise and recommend every woman to seek medical attention from her gynecologist if these testing methods provide them positive result or if a woman believe that the test might have delivered a false negative.
Not only just knowing that which brand and model is most accurate and reliable it is also imperative to understand that when and how these tests should be performed. If the test is performed timely and appropriate care is taken than it would be beneficial for the health of the woman and the unborn baby. A simple example would be that let's say a woman has been involved in sexual activity in the last couple of days and then now she has missed her periods then for sure she needs to perform a pregnancy test immediately.
The body also gives various signals and if in case the woman has been involved actively into sexual activities and now she feels fatigued, dizzy etc then also taking one of the appropriate test as mentioned above is recommended. Bloating, soreness in breasts, weight gain, tiredness, frequent urination etc. are all early symptoms of pregnancy. If any of these symptoms are experienced and if you have simultaneously been actively involved in sexual activities in past couple of days than it would be a wise decision to get a pregnancy test done.
All individuals are different and there are cases where the woman are pregnant but do not exhibit any kind of these symptoms in early stages. So if in case the woman has missed her periods but no other symptoms exist, still she should perform a pregnancy test, because that would be imperative not not only for the health of the woman but also for the life of the unborn baby. A woman could be suffering with any other health issue and if she is not aware that she might be pregnant than she might take some medication unknowingly which could be harmful for her baby. For example she can get an x-ray performed or an MRI test done and these radiations are not good for the health of the unborn. Similarly even any kind of dental operations shall not be performed while a woman is expecting because these can induce any kind of bacteria inside the woman blood and that can pass on to the baby as well.
So if you are aware that you are pregnant and if you can convey same to your doctor than the Dr. might be able to change your medicine and provide you with appropriate medication and treatment that is not harmful and negative for your health or your baby. Any mistake or carelessness can result in premature labor or miscarriage.
Same precautions should be taken with your eating habits and if in case you have been drinking and smoking or taking any other kind of drugs then you should immediately stop doing that but you can only do that if you are aware that you are pregnant and hence taking a pregnancy test is imperative if you have missed your periods Or if you experience any kind of other pregnancy symptoms.
