The : The presence of semen would not affect your pregnancy test, as the pregancy test is meant to detect the pregancy hormone. It is very rare to have false-positive pregancy test. If you had 3 positive pregancy tests, make an appointment with your doctor so that your pregancy can be verified by a blood test.
