I was over a month late for a/f, so I went to Dr. urine test neg. . He diagnosed me with pcos. He put me on prometrium. It is now 3 weeks later still no af so I took another test. this time it came up bfp. Do you think the hormone is just messing with the test?

In case anyone is interested I found out that it does not influence the test. But he did misdiagnose the pcos and I am only 5 weeks along not 10 like I would have thought

congratulations!! I had my tubes tied a year ago and have 2 positive pregnancy tests in front of me!! I'll see the Dr. at 8am. Could anything else cause a false positive??

jen, I've heard that an ovarian cyst can sometimes cause a bfp, but outside of that very little else can cause bfp other then an actual pregnancy. Good luck.

I had an ovarian cyst for years an never had a bfp, but I know it is possible, from what I've heard. I was trying to get pregnant for a long time before I knew I had it and the test always showed up negative. I've also heard though (this is quoted from my friends doctor when she got her tubes tied) as long as you have a uterus, you can still get pregnant. I beg to differ on that though, because I dont care if you have 5 uterus, if you dont have any ovaries you're not going to get pregnant! lol

During my search about prometrium and its link to preg test i found out there are some fertility drugs that can contain hcg which is what the tests look for. So a false pos could result. But if you were on this drug you should have been warned.
