  • Yes. Any medication containing HCG will cause a positive pregnancy result when you are not pregnant. HCG can be found in some presciption weight loss medications. You can get a false result when you are pregnant as well. If you take a pregnancy test and are only a week late it may not pick up the hcg in the urine. Also if you take a urine test at night it may not pick it up because you have been urinating all day and the highest concentration of hcg is in the morning in the first urine of the day.
