HPV does not affect the accuracy of any pregnancy tests.No it will not affect a pregnancy test.No. Your just not pregnant.No. Home pregnancy tests achieve their results by detecting a specific hormone present in a woman's urine which is only produced during pregnancy. HPV will not interfere with the detection of the hormone, however, there are other factors which can give false results with home pregnancy tests. If you receive a negative result but believe you are pregnant try repeating the test after a week has passed, or you may consult a physician who can administer a more accurate test.NO a positive pregnancy test is caused by hormones not a virus

Is spotting normal during pregnancy whike you have a uti?

I just came back home from the hospital. I went in for vaginal spotting. Doctor confirmed my pregnancy (6/7 Ala along) and said that spotting during early pregnancy is fairly common as long as its not accompanied by chills, fever, heavy bleeding with or without blood clots. I tested positive for a UTI and doc stated that the spotting could be from that. He put me antibiotics for a week. I have no UTI symptoms besides the spotting and twitched/vibrations around uterus. Good luck.
