I was at the hospital for a procedure and they had to give me a pregnant test but I was dyhydrated so they gave me a IV does that still count at a test?

In brief: If they took blood

Pregnancy tests are done using a blood or urine sample.
If they collected either, then they would be able to do a pregnancy test. An IV is used to give fluids &/or medications.

In brief: No

A pregnancy test comes in two forms.
A urine pregnancy test or a blood hormone test. An IV does not check for pregnancy.
