Hey,
This is my first time on these boards, so i'll give you all some info on me. I"m 21 years old, and have been on birth control for a while. I am now showing signs of being pregnant (breast tenderness, nausea, sensitivity to smells, and headaches (oh the headaches lol)). My question is can you take a pregnancy test and have the results be accurate even though you are on the Pill? I would really like to know. Have asked a few people and been getting mixed answers. THanks so much!!

As i understand it (reading the EPT insert) BCP cannot effect the results of a home pregnancy test.

If i were you i would wait until i am sure my period was late and then test again. If it is still negative then go to the Dr for a blood test. That is the most acurate way to tell.

I agree, wait until you're late. First, pregnancy symptoms and pms can be very similar. Second, some people don't test positive right away. With my son and this pregnancy, I was a week late before I tested positive. After you're a week or so late, if you don't have af yet, get a blood test. Some people only test positive on blood tests. I hope you get the results you want.
