Can urinary tract infections cause "false postive" pregnancy test results?

Posted by: admin  :  Category: urinary tract infection cause


No. A urinary tract infection does not have any impact on the results of a pregnancy test.

The pregnancy test is testing for the presence of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadtropin (or HCG) in your urine. HCG is only present when you are pregnant so if the test result is positive you are pregnant.

Please see your doctor as soon as possible.

    No. A pregnancy test looks for a specific hormone that is only produced when pregnant.

    no. if they pregnancy hormone is present in your body it will cause a positive. a UTI has no affect on a test. Go to a dr and have then do a test to confirm…and if you havent already get treated for that UTI, they can cause problems to your kidneys if left alone.

    No. A pregnancy test looks for the specific hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin ) in the body. A urinary tract infection is caused by bacteria that enter the urinary tract.

    No. It is possible for false negatives however. The hormone is secreted into the urinary tract, and for some women, this doesn't happen, so even if they were nine months pregnant a urine test could come up negative. But no to answer your question about false positives.

    No. Home pregnancy tests detect the hormone hCG, not byproducts of infection. Infections do not cause the hormones to be released. It is best to get the pregnancy confirmed by a doctor and have the UTI treated as soon as possible.
