In brief: 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) or 1 week after missing a period. If done correctly, a negative test result means not pregnant regardless of vaginal spotting or "light periods".
