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.

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?
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

The hpts are quite accurate, but they have their limit--maybe too early for the test to pick-up in your case. So, waite 5-7 days and repeat the test. If still negative then, likely it is negative. If positive, congrats and call your doc for care.

Wait 3 wk after sex: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine 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 positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
