Can my diabetes affect a home pregnancy test??

Can my diabetes affect a home pregnancy test??

Not the test itself: Hi. No, diabetes in any state of control (or lack thereof) will not skew the pregnancy test itself. However, you should be in excellent control for at least a few months prior to conception and throughout the pregnancy if you decide to keep it. Hopefully you're in excellent control ALL the time. Type 2 at age 23 suggests some less than ideal lifestyle factors. Eat healthily and exercise regularly. ...Read more

Can I trust the result of a home pregnancy test ( from first mornin urine) after 10 weeks of intercourse? I know I should but im still suspicious.

Can I trust the result of a home pregnancy test ( from first mornin urine) after 10 weeks of intercourse? I know I should but im still suspicious.

Yes: To clarify, I think your question is whether you might have a negative urine 10 weeks after intercourse and still be pregnant. If that is your question, you can rely on a urine pregnancy test after 10 weeks, but you should consult a provider to determine why you haven't had a period in that amount of time. ...Read more

Could severe dehydration affect the results of a home pregnancy test? And could severe dehydration also cause a missed period?

Severe dehydration?: Please forgive my frankness. Who told you that you had "severe dehydration?" If you are up and about and wondering if you are pregnant, you are going to get something to drink before dehydration becomes severe. "Severe dehydration" kills neglected children and disabled people. Look for some other explanation for your missed period; I hope it is what you want. ...Read more

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate then a dr.S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!

Not likely.: No test is 100% accurate, unfortunately. I'd suggest waiting a week, repeating the home test, and if it's still positive, going back to your doctor's. If the doctor's office urine test is still negative, your doctor can order a blood test for pregnancy, which is more accurate. ...Read more

I have a uti and im taking meds that turn my urine orange, i just took an at home pregnancy test. Its negative, do you think my result was affected?

I have a uti and im taking meds that turn my urine orange, i just took an at home pregnancy test. Its negative, do you think my result was affected?

Pyridium (phenazopyridine): The reason pyridium (phenazopyridine) can make urinalysis or pregnancy tests difficult to read is because the orange color will dye the dipstick or the viewing window on the test. If you could see the test result clearly in the window and it was unambiguously negative, then the pyridium (phenazopyridine) did not affect the test, and the reliability will be the same as always for the test you used. ...Read more

How early can I take a home pregnancy test and get correct results?

Wait 3 wk after sex: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications.

Yes: If you are very early, generally less than 5 weeks, a home pregnancy test may not be positive.

Otherwise, you can go to your doctor to get a blood sample drawn to check a serum pregnancy test which is very accurate. ...Read more
