Antibiotics & Preg. Test ??

Does anyone know if antibiotics or other medications can affect the results of an HPT?  I am currently taking 2 antibiotics and a med. to numb the urinary tract due to an infection.  All medications are "okay" to take while preg. but just curious if they could affect test results.

Thanks

This is what I found on womenshealth . gov

Most medicines should not affect the results of a home pregnancy test (HPT). This includes over-the-counter and prescription medicines, including birth control pills and antibiotics.

After brief googling, basically because the test is only looking for the presence of HCG, antibiotics shouldn't effect it.  Howver, one person in one forum said to look up your Rx just to be sure.
