I took a pregnancy test today. I am on day 27 of a usual 29 day cycle. The test was negative. A few hours before taking the test a ate a pretty big lunch and took a prenatal vitamin. This was my first trip to the bathroom afterwards.
Would or could this affect the outcome of the test. I have been pregnant a few times before, and I at times REALLY feel pregnant. I would think I am most likely not, but just wanted to know if eating and vitamins could have an affect on the outcome of pregnancy tests?
