Ancient Egyptians method of pregnancy testing and identification of the fetus type has been revealed
An ancient Egyptian papyrus, dating back to 3500 years, revealed the method used by the ancient Egyptians to test pregnancy and determine the type of fetus.
The papyrus explained that the ancient Egyptians were carrying out the pregnancy test, by peeing the women, and emptying their entire paws, in bags of wheat and barley, and then waiting for the reaction, according to the location of the US station “CNN” America.
She explained that if wheat and barley grow by the urine of women, it will give birth, and if not grow wheat grains or barley, both, indicating that there is no pregnancy.
The test also reveals that if barley grows, it is a sign that it will produce a boy, but if wheat grows, it will have a girl.
Experts said pregnancy test advice from ancient Egyptians had a great influence on medical methods in Europe and emerged in a book of German folklore in late 1699.
Kim Raholt, president of the Karlsberg Berdiche Group, which owns the text, noted that there are fewer than 12 useful medical texts from ancient Egypt.
“The texts are corrupted and written in an old text that only a few people can read and decipher,” he said.
Earlier in August, the use of ancient Egyptian mummification methods was discovered 1,500 years ago.
Tests conducted on the “mummy of Turin”, dating back to 3700 to 3500 BC, revealed that they were subjected to embalming.
