Tests are accurate: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have been) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early, such as less than 2 weeks after sex.

Agree wih Dr.K: If you have any doubt see a doctor for Blood test for HCG level and an ultrasound examination.
Wish you good health!
