I heard of a homemade pregnancy test im not using it, I just wanted to know if it works. One remedy i kno is that u pee in a cup and put bleach in it and if it fizzes then your pregnant. Can you really determine a pregnancy like that?

To the best of my knowledge, there is no accurate homemade pregnancy test. Pregnancy tests detect a specific hormone produced during pregnancy, and I don't see how bleach alone would have the same effect.
