No effect: Your weight should not effect the accuracy of a urine home pregnancy test which measures HCG which is produced by cells within the placental tissues of the conception.

What should I do if I haven't gotten my period, but don't want to take a pregnancy test because I don't think I'm pregnant?? What else could cause this? Being overweight?
Hormonal imbalance: If you did not have sex since your last period, you do not need to take a pregnancy test. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Hard to tell: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
