I wouldn't think that the Lexapro would screw up the test results themselves, however Lexapro really screws up your menstrual cycle. You can skip periods, only have spotting, etc.

I would think the bigger issue is your getting pregnant while taking something like Lexapro. You really need to talk to your Dr. about that. Lexapro is not the "harmless drug" it was originaly thought to be. I speak from experience and am finally off of this med!

AnswerThere shouldn't be any effects on a home pregnancy test caused by lexapro, and I never had any problems with it effecting my cycle. It isn't perfect, and I also have since gone off it.

Depo Provera shots do not effect the results of home pregnancy tests, nor do they "hide" a pregnancy.

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

Pregnancy tests may vary in results. If you're uncertain, go to a doctor's office and get another pregnancy test, completed by a professional. Their results will likely be more accurate that you using a home pregnancy test.

A doctor's pregnancy test is much more accurate, where as a home pregnancy test can be faulty.

no, only that there is a pregnancy.

Only if it was present during ovulation, so conception occurred and caused a positive pregnancy test.Sperm will not register as a pregnancy; only hCG, detected after the sperm and egg meet and join, can do that.

Yes. I know a woman who had had a total hysterectomy. The next month she took a home pregnancy test, knowing that she hadn't had sex in more than a year before her surgery. Home pregnancy tests done with a urine sample cannot be as exact as tests done using a blood sample.

Yes a home pregnancy test will be accurate usually. But a blood test is the most accurate way of determing pregnancy.

Barring a trip to the doctor's office for a blood test....you can't.

Condoms are not 100% reliable so there is still a chance of pregnancy occurring. If you think you may be pregnant you should take a home pregnancy test and/or see a Dr.

The first home pregnancy test was created and marketed in 1978.

It means your not pregnant don't you need to lines to be concidered pregnant

User Avatar

yes, because you would still be pregnant and still have the hormone which is what the home pregnancy test is testing for.

The morning after pill or emergency contraception will not effect the outcome of a pregnancy test. If you have taken emergency contraception and have had a positive home pregnancy test you are very likely pregnant and should see a Dr.

The best time to take a home pregnancy test is in the morning.....

Yes, home pregnancy tests can produce both false positives and false negatives. If a home pregnancy test is positive, you should see a gynecologist to have the pregnancy confirmed as soon as you can.

User Avatar

No, you have to see a doctor to get the pills or to get a surgical abortion. The pill will have effect at home though.

it takes five minutes fot pregnancy to be detected at home

There are many home pregnancy tests for your friend to use. Home pregnancy test are pretty much the same in terms of accuracy and reliability, so I would recommend the pregnancy test that is the cheapest at a local grocery store or pharmacy.

Maybe. I am on Prozac and had 2 confirmed pregnancy tests, then got my period. Also my cousin was on it (a boy) and took a test for a laugh and it came up positive although I stress this was about 10 years ago.
