No kind of food can affect HPT's, but if you are testing early & drink a lot of water before the test, it could come out a false neg. The water dilutes your urine.

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

No. But for best results when taking an at-home pregnancy test: * Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results * Take the test no more than 1-2 days before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period the percentage of accuracy is very low. * urinate for as long as possible on the foam like strip * wait for the results

The pregnancy tests the hormones in your urine stream, known as hCG, semen does not affect it. That hormone is produced by your body during pregnancy and is the only thing measured by the test. So no, having sex anytime before taking the pregnancy test will not affect your results or give you a false positive. The only time having sex affects your pregnancy test is when it was weeks ago, unprotected, and fertilized the egg.. making you pregnant.

No. Not taking a substance the day before cannot affect your chances of pregnancy.

After ovulation, you should take a pregnancy test after at least ten days. For the best results, wait a full two weeks before taking a pregnancy test.

Yes. There are several things that can contribute to a negative pregnancy test even if you are pregnant. Some medications can give you a false negative, the timing of the test can affect the results. It is also possible if you have experienced a chemical pregnancy (meaning you lost the "baby" before it even implanted into the uterus). If you did not follow directions properly; if you let the test sit for too long the results may read negative after a while. It is important to read the results within the amount of time given on the instructions of that particular pregnancy test you bought. If you did not perform the test properly (example: you drank a lot of fluids before taking the test, which can dilute your urine). Etc To ensure the best results: * Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results * Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low. * urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip * Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test. . On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines, a recent pregnancy or a chemical pregnancy.

If you're pregnant the doctor tells you to drink A LOT of water! So it shouldn't affect the results at all. Plus it's water and that is the healthiest thing for you! Yes it will. True enough you are to drink plenty of water, however when taking a pregnancy test, to much water dilutes the urine.

The test is probably fine, but I would recommend that you do it again just to be sure. I also want to recommend the kind of pregnancy test that you use in just urine stream.To ensure the best results:Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highestDon't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the resultsTake the test no more than 1 day before expected period.

If you want the most accurate results, yes. The reason is because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at their highest in the morning. Also for best results: * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results * Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low. * urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip * Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test.

. I am taking pain medications for a back injury as well as a medication for migraine headaches, and was wondering if this would somehow affect test results.
