Hi
Welcome to healthcare magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.
The combined oral contraceptive pills are if taken as per instructions are very effective ( >99%) in preventing pregnancy. So if you are taking the pills correctly, you should not worry about pregnancy.

As you know no method of contraception is 100 % effective. If at all there is method failure and pregnancy occurs, then you usually miss your periods after the pill packet.

Don't worry. Home pregnancy test is not affected by the pills.
I hope this is helpful. If you have further concerns, I will be happy to answer.

Best wishes,
Dr Rama
