  • well, if you think you are then don't take it to be sure. Ask for blood test to see if you are pregnant. That ways if there is any trace of hcg than you know you are pregnant... with a urine test you can get a negtative if your hcg is too low to detect. Sometimes wiuth some doctors you have to be very persistant.

  • What med are you on? You can take UTI meds while pregnant. Macrobid is something that's typically prescribed for UTIs, and its safe during pregnancy.

  • Whenever you go in to be diagnosed for a problem then the physician has the right to run any tests that are medically necessary in relation to your symptoms. They do not know you definitely have a UTI until that specific test is performed, but rather than running that test, have it come back negative, then run another test, have it come back negative, then run another test, and so one.....they run all the tests at once. For your symptoms, even of a suspected UTI, a pregnancy test is one of the ordinary tests run along with a panel of tests to rule out any other problems or diagnoses.
    When you go in to a physician and ask for help, you are giving that physician permission to test you and treat you within normal limitations. The pregnancy test falls within that category. The physician does not have to explain every single test they run on you unless it is out of the ordinary.
    Sorry, but it's just the way it is.
