A.
What KIND of birth control? If you are talking about the birth control PILL, then the answer is no. The birth control pill will not cause a false pregnancy test. A person can have a false pregnancy test anyway, but not because of the Pill.  Pregnancy tests check for the presence of a hormone called HCG. The Pill does not have HCG.
