The female body becomes complicated as they age especially when it comes menstral cycle and pregnancy. Most people exhibits various sysptoms and behaviours prior to their pregnancy. This makes it sometimes difficult for to know whether there is pregnancy or not. Testing and knowing whether someone is pregnant has become easy in our modern world as compare to the olden days. This is because of the advanced in technology in our modern era. Nevertheless, some of the methods used in the olden days are still useful in this era due to how effective it was.
People have been wondering how our parents and elders in the olden days were easily able to notice a pregnant woman at early stages of the pregnancy and what was was being used to confirmed it, since there was no modern pregnancy test kits as we have today. Most of our elders were knowledgeable with these early symptoms of pregnancy and used different methods to confirmed it. Some of them check the changes in the body of the woman since they take notice of the person each and every day so the moment there is a slight change in her they tend to sense something. This made them special and unique. Some go to the extent of using different natural methods to check it since things were no modernise tools as it is now.
The great thing was that most of their natural methods always yield good results. The test of pregnancy by our elders was done using many natural products such as salt, onions/garlic. The common one and frequently used was the onion test.
The onion test was normally done when there is suspicion of pregnancy in a woman especially when a woman begin to complain of unusual feelings such as feverish,dizziness,sore nipple and pains in breast, miss periods. The onion test was conducted to confirmed if truly indeed these signs are as a result of pregnancy. This test has been in existence from the olden days till now due to how reliable it is.
This is how it is done.
Cut a slide of onion.
Onions has a strong scent when it is cut or slide into pieces.
Insert some slides of the onions into the vagina overnight.
Some slides of the onions is inserted into the vagina overnight to observe the results the following morning. The reason being that the results will confirm how the womb looks like and then the identification of the womb will confirm whether there is pregnancy or not. Since the womb undergo some changes when there is pregnancy.
The woman test negative for pregnancy when her breath smells of onion the next morning after the insertion.Meaning she is not pregnant and her womb is open. The oniony scent move into her mouth like a wind tunnel since the womb is opened.
The woman test positive for pregnancy when her breath does not smell of onion the next morning after the insertion. Meaning she is pregnant and her womb is closed. The onions scent could not move to her mouth since the womb is closed
