I swallowed my boyfriends semen last night and he is a heavy heroin user. And I had to take a UA today will that cause my test to come up positive?

Unlikely: It is not likely that swallowing the semen of a heroin user will cause you to have a positive urine test. However, by having a heroin user as a boyfriend you are exposing yourself to many dangers, including HIV. Please reconsider your choice to have relations with a drug abuser.
