The wheat and barley method
In ancient Egypt women were told to urinate on shafts of wheat and barley for a certain period of time. If pregnant; the wheat and barley would grow.
This process has been confirmed by modern science, as apparently barley can’t grow without the water that contains the urine of pregnant woman.

Recipe for a popular Egyptian birth control
A bit of mud
Mix well and insert in vagina right before the act. Apparently the cocrodile feces is a powerful spermicide.
The above is a fresh croc of poop. I am sure that there were those who just abstained from intercourse all together rather than rely on this as their form of contraception.
('cause I'll tell you right now that I would just say, "NO!")
THE EGYPTIANS USED MOLD ON BREAD TO HEAL
The Egyptians were the first to document the use of antibiotics. They would place moldy bread on wounds to heal faster.
Gladiators were the rock stars of their day because they embodied the true Roman values of masculinity, strength and victory, and even more so then than now with modern celebrities their fans would buy anything associated with them. Even their bodily fluids were to hold special properties that the average Roman didn't have. Industries sprouted up around gladiatorial schools where they sold these essences.
Epilepsy and Infertility
Between the first and sixth centuries Roman physicians prescribed consuming a glass of gladiators blood for their liver to cure epilepsy and infertility. It had to be fresh because this gladiator's blood was commonly sold in the arena and was considered quite expensive. For those who couldn't afford it, would attend a public execution and purchase a virile criminal's blood to drink in its place.
Gladiator sweat was sold as a potent aphrodisiac. The sweat washed off in the bath house and would be collected and mixed with cosmetic creams to be applied to woman faces. The hope was that the raw vitality of a warrior would inspire lust and virility in those nearby.
Roman dry cleaning and laundry
The ancient Romans used ammonia to clean their garments that was derived from human urine. The dry cleaners willfully made routes of collecting daily human urine to give the garments a good and soak or steam in it.
The Romans method for white teeth
Urine has been used for centuries as a crucial ingredient in chemical processes, industries and cleaning. This is because it is rich in ammonia which is used in everything from washing to the tanning of animal hides. The Romans however, also used urine to clean and whiten their teeth as the ammonia worked as a bleaching agent.
Urine was so vital to industry that the Emperor Vespasian introduced a urine tax for the industries that bought it from the Roman latrines. The historian Suetonius later said that Vaspasian's son, Titus, was disgusted by the tax and when he complained Vespasian replied, "Pecunia non let", interpreted as Money does not stink."
