Can being overweight or obese affect HPT readings??? Like say that clear blue requires a level of 50 but being overweight can this cause the numbers to not be high enough?

No i just meant that would it take longer for the hormone to show up on the HPT???

Your weight shouldn't have anything to do with your HCG count (which is the pregnancy hormone preg. tests pick up)

I have read that fat stores estrogen and can affect ovulation. Perhaps it can store hCG too, and slow down it's appearance. Remember that hCG goes from under 3 to over 100,000 in the first trimester. At some time it is going to show up no matter what.

I Googled fat hCG and found a reference to hCG acting on fat ma__ses, so at least we know there is an interaction. Read http://indexmedico.com/obesity/hcg.htm (no hyphens)
