Have you ever wondered how home made pregnancy works? The sudden appearance of a plus sign or second pink line can seem downright magical. What kind of sorcery is this? How does it work.

In reality, the whole process is very scientific — and essentially just a chemical reaction.

HCG, pregnancy hormone or human chorionic gonadotropin — once you’ve built up enough of it — reacts with home pregnancy test strips and produces that second line.

For many, it stands to reason that you may be able to produce this chemical reaction using common substances you have around the house. Bypass the trip to the store and the expense of home pregnancy test strips? 

The sugar pregnancy test is one that has gained popularity on the internet. How do you do it, and is it reliable? Let’s take a look. 

What you’ll need to do the test

Like most home made pregnancy tests touted on the internet, this one uses things you have around the house. Here is what you’ll need for this all-in-good-fun science experiment:

A clean bowl

A clean cup or container for collecting urine.

Sugar.

How to do the test

After collecting your supplies, most sources recommend the following:

Put a couple spoonfuls of sugar into the clean bowl.

Pee into the cup using your first morning urine.

Pour your pee over the sugar.

Wait for a few minutes. Do not mix or stir the content. Just see what happens.

the results.

What a positive result looks like

According to the popular belief, if you have hCG in your urine, the sugar won’t dissolve like it normally would. Instead, advocates of this test say the sugar will clump, indicating pregnancy.

So for a supposedly positive result, you’ll see clumps of sugar in the bottom of the bowl. There is no real clarification on whether these will be large or small clumps — but the point is, you’ll see undissolved sugar.

What a negative result looks like.

When the sugar dissolves in the urine then it is an indication of not being pregnant. Many people have tried out this and it has worked for them.
