Can birth control make a prego test positive

I do not think I am prego and I never took a test. I am on birth control. This was just a question that popped up in my mind and would be nice to know just in case. Thank you.

Answer #1

No, the test for pregnancy is something particular that is released during pregnancy (it doesnt check for oestrogen/progesterone which is in birth control)

Answer #2

It won’t make a test positive.But there is still a chance you can get pregnant on birth control so be careful :)

Answer #3

Sika is right. A pregnancy test will be positive if hCG is detected in the urine - the hCG will only be present if you are pregnant (or it could be a tumor in the uterus- but thats a different story!) If your pregnancy test shows up positive and you’re on birth control, it means you weren’t consistent with taking the pills every day at the same time..

Answer #4

From the very beginning of your pregnancy, the fetus produces a hormone called hCG, or, human Chorionic Gondotrophin. This hormone is present in your urine if you are pregnant and increases as your pregnancy progresses, peaking at around 8-11 weeks. This is what a home pregnancy test is testing for in your urine.

So no, hormonal birth control options will not cause a positive home pregnancy test. If you got a positive you need to quit taking your hormonal birth control and see a doctor asap.
