Can antibiotics cause false negative uti test?

Yes

Pills
If an antibiotic is taken before submitting the urine specimen, the urine culture is likely to show no growth (false negative) and urinalysis in general have a high rate of false positives and false negatives.

Cont back pain, peeing a LOT, weird tingles in legs/feet, higher BBT,craving steak, insomnia..I had a False UTI & negative urine pregnancy test. help?

Confusing

Pregnancy
Not sure what you mean by a false UTI. If your urine pregnancy test is negative and you repeat it a few days later then you can rest assured you are not pregnant. See a primary care to discuss and organize a plan to evaluate all the other symptoms.

Uti medicine can cause false positive std test?

No

Chlamydia_infections
If you had testing for an STD (I will assume that you mean from a culture of your cervix) then you should absolutely assume that it is a positive result. It needs to be treated and you need to go back in in 1-2 weeks for a "test of cure".

depends on the test, many are based on color changes with a chemical reaction that can be non-specific. a catheterized urine culture is the most reliable.

Azo uti test positive leukocytes but negative nitrites mean an std?

UTI

Sexually_transmitted_infections
Not necessarily. Your question assumes that we can diagnose on the internet, and this is impossible without a full exam and history and all your lab data. Good luck.

symptoms of uti off n on but test negative what could it be? N should i be worried?

Mild OAB or IC

Urinary_tract_infection
Hope you don't use bubble bath & you shower rather than bathe. That could be cause. Otherwise could be mild overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis or reaction to mediaction, caffeine or certain foods or beverages which can irritate the bladder.
