Question: minipills and pregnancy test

 abearsaed - Wed Jan 28, 2009 3:18 am

is it accurate to depend on pregnancy test while on minipills?

User avatar Hello,
It is my understanding that the pill use does not interfere with pregnancy testing which measures hcg levels independent of the hormones in the pill.

Best wishes.
