Would a yeast infection or the medication taken for it cause a false negative on a home pregnancy test?

Nope. Absolutely not. A home pregnancy test is checking for HCG -- the pregnancy hormone -- and neither yeast infections nor their treatment will mask the presence of HCG in someone's body.

How would a yeast infection be a sign of pregnancy? You treat a yeast infection with medication you can purchase at the drug store. If you think you're pregnant, take a pregnancy test. The signs of pregnancy are a missing period and positive pregnancy test.

No, medication would not make the test say negative, but it could make your period late. It may have been too early to take a test. Take one a week after you took the first one

. 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.

Pregnancy tests look for a hormone that is secreted by an implanted egg called hCG. It can only be detected if you are pregnant. If a pregnancy test is positive, it is best to follow-up with a provider for confirmation, but a negative result would not be due to a UTI.
