In brief: I

I am not aware of any type of birth control pills causing a false pregnancy test (negative or positive).
The hormone that is detected in pregnancy tests is specific for pregnancy only and birth control does not interact with it in any way. If you are unsure, visit your doctor for a consultation and testing.
