Do Toothepaste Pregnancy Tests Work?

La Crosse, WI, United States / KICKS 106.3

I’m going to get right to it…with something as important as finding out if you are pregnant or not, why are you using a “trend” to find out if you are, in fact, pregnant?! Buy a test from the store, you can get them for as little as a buck!

Here’s how it works: Just squeeze a small amount of plain white toothpaste on a dish and add a few drops of morning urine. Then mix it up and wait for about three minutes.

• If a woman is pregnant, the toothpaste will froth and might even turn a bluish color. If nothing changes, the test is negative.

• Scientists and medical professionals urge women not to take the trend too seriously. “The fizz in the toothpaste is caused by the acid in the urine reacting with the calcium carbonate in the toothpaste.
