Are you wondering if you are pregnant or not? Or Are you suspecting to be pregnant due to unprotected sex you had lately? You'll have to wait and take another test in a week. Or better still do a blood pregnancy test. It's more accurate and can detect pregnancy earlier.

No need to worry at all. It happens. I guess the Ultrasound was a bit early. You may need to have another ultrasound a week/2 weeks or so later to detect the pregnancy. It is possible to detect a pregnancy of 5 ½ weeks gestation on ultrasound. I guess the Nurse couldn't see A tiny sac, the baby and their heartbeat yet
How do I do a pregnancy test with salt and what is the Procedure?

▷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.


▷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).
Milk is coming out of my breast, I did a pregnancy test and I'm not pregnant. What can be the cause?
  • Best Answer
Sorry about your experience. One reason you might be experiencing Milk coming from your breast is over secretion of Prolactin. It is medically referred to as Hyperprolactinemia. Hyperprolactinemia is a state characterized by high levels of a hormone called prolactin in the blood. Prolactin is produced by the pituitary gland and plays a vital role in the development of the breasts during pregnancy.

While hyperprolactinemia is considered perfectly normal during pregnancy and breastfeeding, it can occur at other times due to disease and medication use. Hyperprolactinemia can affect both woman and men, resulting in irregular menstrual periods and erectile dysfunction, among other things.

Other causes may include:

Hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone levels)
Cirrhosis of the liver
Chronic kidney failure
Antidepressants (Anafranil, Norpramin)
Antipsychotics (Haldol, Zyprexa, Risperdal)
Antihypertensives ( Verelan, Calan, Covera-HS, Isoptin)
Antinauseals (Reglan, Primperan, Lexapram)
Acid H2 blockers (Tagamet, Zantac)

I think you should see a doctor asap.
