Thanks for posting your query.

Taking steroids- winstrol and clenbuterol is not likely to cause false positive urine test for pregnancy. These tests are 97% accurate.

The positive urine test is based on the HCG levels in the urine which are not affected by intake of steroids.

You can also get your serum HCG levels estimated after consulting your Gynecologist since this is more specific than urine for pregnancy tests. This will help in further confirmation of pregnancy.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.

Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
