No: I hope that the result you get from your pregnancy test is the one you want.
Blood test/No booze!: A blood test is accurate and is not likely to be affected by alcohol intake. However, if you could get pregnant, do not drink alcohol at all and see your doctor for taking pre-natal vitamins. Alcohol intake during pregnancy is the commonest preventable cause of mental retardation in a baby.
Does drinking alcohol affect the results of a pregnancy test? Since drinking alcohol affects the placenta which affects the hcg hormone?
Alcohol: Alcohol is safe when not overdone. That said, when you do become pregnant stop the alcohol.

Fetal alcohol syndrome:would 2-4 drinks do harm before implantation? If I had a positive pregnancy test on 09/23, when would implantation take place?
No: Only 1-2 drinks during the whole pregnancy probably won't harm the baby. The completely different answer would be if it take place every day. When implantation would take a place can't be answered from the information provided.
Sure: It won't affect it. I hope you get the result you want.
Possible but not: Recommended. Alcohol acts as a diuretic and dilutes the urine and may end up producing a negative result. If you could be pregnant or are trying to be pregnant, do not drink at all. Alcohol is the commonest avoidable cause of mental retardation in the baby. You should do the home test 4-5 days after a missed period.

Bleeding: Depends on where you are bleeding from. Some people get alcoholic gastritis and bleed from their stomachs, etc. If you mean bleeding from vagina, please see your ob-gyn physician. Also, please don't drink alcohol at all when pregnant. This compromises your baby's development, and is not fair to him or her.
I have never had a problem drinking alcohol. I find myself getting sick from 1 drink all the sudden. Could it be early pregnancy?
If I drank alcohol before knowing I was pregnant would my torso feel sort of bruised the day after in reaction to drinking alcohol in early pregnancy?
I have no clue: And don't quite understand what you mean about "torso feeling bruised." what risks there are to your unborn baby are probably relatively small, but that depends on how much drinking you were doing and how often. Your obstetrics provider can do a variety of tests to look at the baby's health, but this would be usually done somewhat later in the pregnancy. Your doctor should evaluate your pain.
Yes it is ok: Yes it is ok to do it. The test will not be affected by drinking.
Not very much: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.

Not if 3wk after sex: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception.See 1 more doctor answer
