Im on the implanon birth control since June 2012 and took a pregnancy test recently and came up postive. Can that birth control affect the result? Whats the most accurate pregnancy test.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

hello

Dr. Pfeiffer :

Implanon is quite reliable and contains only a progesterone hormone.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

this type of hormone does NOT affect a pregnancy test result.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

I would recommend having a blood pregnancy test done to either confirm the positive result or indicate a faulty urine test.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

If you have additional questions please ask.

Thank you for your fast response, but will the implanon hormones affect the fetus because I can't get it removed anytime soon.
