NO, a pregnancy test only looks for the hormone HCG, not much can cause a false positive.

Gardasil is a drug that is classed Category B for pregnancy, meaning that they have done animal testing on it in relation to pregnancy, and it seems to be safe to take during pregnancy.  But they also say (because it is also a new drug) that just to be on the safest side in the event of long-term unlooked for problems that they cannot predict, it is generally better not to get Gardasil shots during pregnancy.  If you have recently tested positive for pregnancy it will not be because of the Gardasil shot (it cannot make you test positive for pregnancy, as the ladies have already said), but the fact that you had a Gardasil shot while pregnant will still be somewhat worth mentioning to the doctor.  I hope things are going as you wish them to with all this.   Annie
