The instructions on the home pregnancy test I checked say that the only drug that should affect your test is if you get an HCG shot.

The major one that would affect a pregnancy test is HCG, which is used during infertility treatments, it's the same hormone your body produces during pregnancy and it's the hormone the home test is looking for. other than that medications do not affect the outcome of a home pregnancy test. ~pawsalmighty

It would not make a difference. If you are pregnant please think about quiting cigarettes.It not only smoking marijuana but consuming any kind of drug will affect the pregnancy test results.

Pregnancy tests check levels of perticular hormones. Smoking marijuana does not affect hormone levels in the body. So to answer your question, no it wont affect the results of a pregnancy test.

Antibiotics do not affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test. Pregnancy test results are quite specific.

A medication with HCG will effect the pregnancy test results. Nothing else apart from this will effect a test result.

For the most accurate results, the only urine that should touch the pregnancy test should be you.

Tonic water does not affect the results of a drug test. Tonic water does not show up as a prohibited substance on a drug screening nor does it prevent the test from detecting substances.

Pregnancy tests check for hCG, a hormone produced in pregnancy but not found in the contraceptive implant. Nexlanon, Implanon, and Norplant will not affect the results of a blood or urine pregnancy test.

Take a pregnancy test to determine if you're pregnant while on the contraceptve implant. The implant does not affect the results of a pregnancy test.

I know that marijauna and methamphetamines will not cause you to fail a drug test. However I have heard that Ectasy may affect the results of a drug test.

User Avatar

no it does not. I asked a health adviser on the NHS.

Caffeine itself will not alter the results of a pregnancy test. However, caffeine is a diuretic, which can dilute the urine. This may make it more difficult for a urine-dependent pregnancy test to detect the pregnancy hormones. For the most accurate results, perform a pregnancy test when you first urinate in the morning. Your urine will be most concentrated at that point in the day and the test will be more accurate.
