Does Clomid Have Any Effect on Preg Test Results?!?!

Anyone know if clomid can affect the results of an HPT please?!

I'm currently on 3rd clomid cycle. Usually 26/27 day cycle, although has gone to 28 days on clomid. I'm now on day 30 & have only just plucked up the courage to do a pregnancy test...... (after 18 months of ttc the "might be" was always nicer than the definite "no" or negative test result!). Anyway, I've got a line...... not the darkest of lines, but definitely there Shock. But just thought I'd check that clomid doesn't play tricks on test results before I break the glad news to DH Grin....

Please, please let it be a real "positive"....

Think it doesn't affect pg tests (it didn't with me!), so a hesitant but quite positive congrats from me! Grin

Hiya.. I was on clomid for my first baby...... and after i did 7 tests did I believee I was pregnant. There is actually a bit on the instructions that says clomid doesn't affect the test (if i remember correctly)

Congrats Grin

Wow. Quick answers! Thank you :) Micku5, is that the instructions on the HPT or on the clomid tablets (err...thrown them away coz box empty - only prescribed 3 cyles worth) do you know? Off to go & double check the instructions on the HPT now....

Iirc it does mention Clomid on the HPT instructions (both ds's were conceived using it). It should say that it has no effect on the result.

Which means congratulations are in order!!

It was on the pregnancy tests.
