Does Adderall affect a pregnancy test report?

Hi over the past 2 years my husband and I have been trying to conceive well recently in November last year we gave up... I had surgery in October to remove a cyst from my left ovary.... In January I had a very odd cycle... It came a week early and lasted 4 days and spotted brown the rest of the 7 days... Well I m due for another cycle and I haven t got it in 2 weeks. ..I have taken adderall a few times to help me focus and etc but I don t take it everyday.... I have taken pregnancy tests but all have said negative.... Could I be pregnant and the adderall is giving me a false negative?

Actually false -ve report of pregnancy test is not possible. Adderall does not have any effect on pregnancy testing. You seem to have a hormonal imbalance causing menstrual disturbances. In case you are still trying for a pregnancy... contact a fertility specialist.

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