Default Homemade Pregnancy Test


The technique is extremely simple. They put wheat and barley seeds in a cup, the woman in question would then urinate on the seeds, cover it with a cloth and check back the next day. If the seeds sprouted she is pregnant and if they didn’t she isn’t. They even said they could tell whether it was a boy or girl depending on if it was the majority of barley or wheat that sprouted. Researchers tested this back in the 60′s and found it to be 70% accurate. That seems to be about the same accuracy as the modern ones, especially the cheap ones. The ancient pregnancy test works on the same principle as that of a modern pregnancy test, looking for chemical change only present in pregnant women.
