Retch Pregnancy Test

Detect possible pregnancy fairly inaccurately with smelly sticks

A device somewhat like an e-cig contains a series of essential oils distilled from common triggers of nausea in early pregnancy. Simply smell the fumes and if you get nauseous, maybe you're pregnant.

It wouldn't work very well though. Much better just to pee on a stick really.

       [19thly], I'm a biologist, so you need to trust me when I tell you that you're not pregnant.

       I think I'd also trust you when you told me this wouldn't work [MB]. It's just, there's the "gag pregnancy test" idea which has resurfaced and I thought it was this all along until I read it, so I thought this should be here too.

       Another daily laugh from MB. Yay and I agree, prolly not.

       Actually, [19thly], I think I've found a way. Have you still got your appendix?

       I'm aware of the technical possibility of implanting a zygote in the greater omentum but that is a little off-topic. I'm pretty old, I did a YT channel about male pregnancy and I have two adult children anyway. I think that particular aspect is a fairly closed book.

       I don't know... is this stick actually a metal post of an electric fence?   

       If you pee on one of those and your baby jumps a bit, you might be pregnant. At least for a little while...
