In order to test your pregnancy with vinegar, all you need is a cup, your urine sample, and some vinegar.


Take some vinegar in the cup and mix it with the urine. Wait for the mixture to change its colour.
When you mix, it may cause bubbles, but that’s okay and not harmful for your health like when you mix the urine with bleach. It is safe; you don’t have to worry.


If the solution changes colour, it is a sign of positive pregnancy. But if the liquid’s colour remains unchanged, it indicates that you are not pregnant.


There is a disadvantage to this vinegar pregnancy test; you can’t really know the exact amount of vinegar and urine to be mixed in one solution which leaves you apprehensive about whether you followed the correct steps for the procedure or not. Plus, the colour of the vinegar pregnancy test solution can be too light to be noticed. Another disadvantage of a homemade pregnancy test with vinegar is that you cannot determine how much time you need to wait for the results to show.

We know that’s a lot of minus points for a homemade pregnancy test with vinegar, but the trick seems to be working and giving correct results for some women.  And anyways, at a time when other options aren’t available, there is no harm in trying to test your pregnancy with the help of vinegar because it is readily available and easily done.

Now that you have learnt how to make a homemade pregnancy test with vinegar, you can put it to use the next time you notice signs and symptoms of pregnancy like tender breasts, missed periods, nausea and aches. But, we recommend that you refer to a doctor or get a urine test done clinically to be certain of pregnancy regardless of the results of homemade pregnancy tests.
