How do I do a pregnancy test with salt and what is the Procedure?
  • Best Answer
▷Are you wondering if you are pregnant or not? Or Are you suspecting to be pregnant due to unprotected sex you had lately? Here is a simple way to check by yourself if you are pregnant or not. It requires only salt. You do not have to visit a doctor or any health personnel. It is as simple and easy as ABC. Salt is considered to be a very clean chemical compound since it is crystalline in nature. This characteristic nature of salt makes it a very good and popular chemical compound for testing if an individual is pregnant or not. Also, its chemical content is highly effective in detecting a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) which is normally found in the urine of pregnant ladies or women. ****Things you would need for the salt pregnancy test: **** ▷1. A transparent glass bowl (you can use any other bowl but most people prefer transparent glass bowl in order to notice clearly and quickly if there is a change in colour or not after the test). ▷2. Salt. ▷3. Urine. ▷3. Stirrer (it can be a spoon, spatula or anything that can be used to stir). ****Procedure **** ▷Remove food reserves from the leaves of a potted plant by keeping it in the dark for 24 hours (example; in a cupboard). ▷Test for the starch to ensure no starch is present. ****Follow the procedure below to test for pregnancy **** ▷1. When you wake up early in the morning, the first thing to do is to go straight for the bowl and urinate into it. Note: only morning urine should be used in order to acquire better results. ▷2. Now add a considerable amount of salt to the urine in the bowl. ▷3. Stir the solution with your stirrer for a few seconds. ▷4. Leave the solution for about ten (10) minutes. ▷5. Now, carefully check and observe if there is a change or not. RESULTS ▷If there is no change to the salt and urine, then you are probably not pregnant (negative). ▷But if the salt in the urine slightly or greatly change or clumps and becomes like a milk cheese, then my dear, you are a hundred per cent (100%) pregnant (positive).

Please advice, How and where can I get a Mantoux test done?. A baby who was given BCG injection after birth but is 4months now and...
  • Best Answer
Sometimes the BCG is given too deep instead of into the skin. Usually, to confirm in case of no BCG scar, we will do a Mantoux test to see if there is a reaction expected for someone who has had BCG. If there is none after 72 hours, we will give the BCG again as long as the child is healthy (a normal chest x-ray may be needed at times)'.

As a first step in dealing with your child's sucking habits, ignore them! Most often, they will stop on their own. Harsh words, teasing, or punishment may upset your child and is not an effective way to get rid of habits. Instead, try the following: Praise and reward your child when she does not suck her thumb or use the pacifier. Star charts, daily rewards, and gentle reminders, especially during the day, are also very helpful. If your child uses sucking to relieve boredom, keep her hands busy or distract her with things she finds fun. If you see changes in the roof of your child's mouth (palate) or in the way the teeth are lining up, talk with your paediatrician or pediatric dentist. There are devices that can be put in the mouth that make it uncomfortable to suck on a finger or thumb. No matter what method you try, be sure to explain it to your child. If it makes your child afraid or tense, stop it at once. The good news is that most children stop their sucking habits before they get very far in school. This is because of peer pressure. While your child might still use sucking as a way of going to sleep or calming down when upset, this is usually done in private and is not harmful. Putting too much pressure on your child to stop may cause more harm than good. Be assured your child will eventually stop the habit on her own. Pacifiers and Thumb Sucking As a first step in dealing with your child's sucking habits, ignore them, because most often they will stop on their own. Here are some other tips to get a child to stop sucking their thumb or using a pacifier
