From the results of the research by scientists, we can find that the medicine in the ancient Egyptian era has unexpectedly improved. New Kingdom era doctors (mid-sixteenth century-third quarter of the eleventh century BC) already knew how to determine pregnancy early, and they even tried to determine the sex of future babies.
According to the papyrus stored in the Carlsberg laboratory in Denmark, to find out if a woman is pregnant, you must do the following: Prepare two separate bags with barley and wheat inside, and use the woman’s urine daily The liquid is mixed. When the grain germinates, it indicates that the woman is pregnant. If only barley grows, then there will be a boy, and if only wheat grows, it indicates a girl. If the grain does not germinate, it is proof that you are not pregnant.
