Question: Would a vaginal suppository for a yeast infection affect a pregnancy test?
Im taking an over the counter vaginal suppository for a yeast infection. Will that affect a home pregnancy test? I know its best to take the test first urination of the morning but that is when the excess cream comes out. So could it modify the results?

Best answer:

Answer by Simon
Home pregnancy tests generally test for a hormone contained in the urine, so the result should not be affected. Bear in mind that these tests are NOT 100% accurate anyway!

The Mayo clinic states:
“Shortly after a fertilized egg attaches to your uterine lining, the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) begins production in the placenta and enters your bloodstream and urine. During early pregnancy, the HCG in your blood increases rapidly — often doubling each two to three days. Many home pregnancy tests can reliably detect this hormone in your urine one week after a missed period.”

Nor will the yeast infection itself change the result (see second source)

Good luck!
