    If they aren't specifically testing for it out shouldn't show up, but even if by some miracle it did they wouldn't care either. Nicotine is in cigarettes and loads of people smoke, even as teenagers. A doctor might suggest you stop smoking because it's unhealthy, but they aren't going to do any more than that. Past 16 you're an adult as far as confidentially goes so they wouldn't be able to tell your parents or anybody either (unless you bring them into an appointment with you where it comes up).

    But anyway hormones and nicotine are very different things so it shouldn't even come up on the tests to start with.
