Hello,

No, it will not. Simultaneous use of other medicines would not affect your pregnancy test. Only pregnant ovaries secrete HCG -Human chorionic gonadotrophin for support of pregnancy.

The increasing levels of this hormone are detected in urine and are independent of other factors.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr AJEET SINGH, General & Family Physician
