Tests are accurate: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by PCOS, but if done too early, a negative result may be due to testing too soon. A correctly done urine test will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period.
