Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. The possibility of false positive exists in urine pregnancy test kits. They are not accurate.

2. Best option is give blood for serum beta hCG test which will accurately confirm pregnancy.

3. These medicines are not absolutely bad for baby. Let her get tested for serum beta hCG. If pregnancy is confirmed the medicines can be altered.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
