I don't think the tests are faulty. However, those types of medicines tend to screw up menstrual functions. ~ T

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.

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.

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

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.

Azithromycin won't affect a pregnancy test; pregnancy tests are dependant on hormone levels and azithromycin antibiotic doesn't affect hormone levels.

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.

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

No. It does not affect your pregnancy test. You do pregnancy test on your urine.

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.

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.
