A lot of women try homemade pregnancy tests because of their lack of access to proper clinics or medical stores from where they can get a pregnancy test kit. For these women, the best form of homemade pregnancy test that comes in handy is DIY test. DIY home pregnancy test with sugar are not harmful, but then if they are not used as they should be, homemade pregnancy test can be ineffective. It is imperative for one to be cautious before picking the type of homemade pregnancy test to use.
Even if the results of the home pregnancy tests with sugar show that you are not pregnant, you must visit the doctor to be sure that you really are not pregnant. This is because the pregnancy tests done at home can be inaccurate and will therefore, make you miss on the very important prenatal care that you need during pregnancy. The ingredients that you pick for your home pregnancy test must be chosen wisely because some of these products can do more harm than benefit.

Any homemade pregnancy test is done to check for the presence of the pregnancy hormone, hCG, in the urine. The amount of hCG that is present in a woman’s urine determines whether she is pregnant or not. A woman releases this hormone the most when she is pregnant.
The best time to take a home pregnancy test with sugar is in the morning, immediately after one has got up from sleep. The first morning urine is usually not diluted and is the best to tell if one is pregnant or not.
To perform home pregnancy test with sugar, take a bowl and add two to three spoons of sugar into it. When you have an urge to urinate, pee into the bowl. Watch out for the reaction. If the sugar dissolves, you are not pregnant, but if it clumps up, you certaintly are. Try to use this method in the morning to get the most accurate results.
It may please be noted that it is imperative for you to check with your doctor irrespective of what result the home pregnancy test shows. Homemade pregnancy tests must be used only when other alternatives are not available.
