Pregancy test
Hi there

Would just like to know, to take a home pregancy test is almost accurate but if a woman was drinking a couple of beers the night before how accurate will the test be in the morning if there will be signs of alcohol in urine.

Should one wait 24hours or should the alcohol not affect the test at all.

Don, the alcohol shouldn’t have much of an effect as long as you use the first urine after getting up in the morning. Good luck.
