IC effects on home pregnancy tests

I am trying to conceive, I am having pregnancy symptoms (I have been pregnant 3 times before/ 1 child/ 2 miscarriages), but am not getting a pos on the home pregnancy tests (17 daysafter ovulation). Can IC effect the results of a these tests?

Hi,
IC will not affect your pregnancy test or your ability to get pregnant.  The pregnancy test relies on hormonal changes of pregnancy that are not affected by IC.  In fact most patients with IC have resolution or lessing of their symptoms during pregnancy.  Good Luck
