i was wondering if being on prometrium could mess up a hpt? i started on it last Saturday and i was just wondering if it would even make sense to test when the time comes lol

no, it shouldn't "tweek" the results at all, you need both progesterone AND estrogen at pregnancy levels to get a positive on a HPT....but if AF shows, you need to quit taking it so your body can finish it's cycle...GL!

Prometrium is progesterone and hpt's test for hcg.  I don't think it would have any effect.  Hope it turns out well for you.

Nope....progesterone can't affect a home pregnancy test.  As others have said, a pregnancy test is testing for the hcg hormone not progesterone.  They are totally different tests.  I would wait until the day that you are supposed to get your period since, often times, you don't actually get your period when you are on progesterone.  I always have to stop taking it for it to actually come.  Hopefully, you won't have to worry about that and you can keep on taking it :).
