Tests are accurate: Pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done correctly, a negative test result means not pregnant. Unintentional, mysterious weight gain should be checked by one's doctor.
