Hello ladies, I was wondering if anyone has experience of home pregnancy tests showing negative but you actually were pregnant? Either finding out with a later than usual hpt positive or having to have blood test

I havent but it is possible. You could have tested too early, or used a test that needs a higher level of pregnancy hormone, or have wee that is too diluted.

Tbh I think its really rare. Hpts pick up 10iu of hcg (preg hormone) if early tests and normal tests pick up 25iu of hcg. Blood tests (blood hcg) won't give a positive result till the level is over 25iu of hcg.
The urine preg tests we use at work are only reliable if used 7 days after a period is late because we were getting some false negative results due to vvv faint lines. I think possibly Beez got negative tests early on but then got positives a bit later.

I knew it was rare but thought I'd ask just in case. I'm cd54 today with still no AF and a negative result when I poas earlier. Not suggesting I am pregnant but just exploring all possibilities now I guess

I had 6 negative tests with C, before I got a positive. I was 16 weeks by that stage.

I had plenty of BFNs before BFPs with P, and the pregnancy before her. I don't seem to get BFPs until at least 13/14DPO, much later than lots of ladies on here and even then they were very faint line.

I've had sensitive ICs coming up as BFN when a CBD has been positive. It wasn't a dodgy batch as they picked up my pregnancy at about 6 weeks.

I'm also 67 days since conception. I've had all pos faint lines and some negatives. I'm defiantly pregnant. Almost 10 weeks.
Witg my first two kids the HCG was detected before 6 weeks in.
pregnancy an anomaly and every pregnancy is different.
Im just waiting to feel the kicking and butterfly flutters because I refuse to get radiation for no good reason.
I trust my body. I was not trying to concieve. I'll be happy if I'm not pregnant. It's a win win. :)
I'll post updated Info as I get it. It's good to share our personal stories to relate but remember, any things possible in the land of pregnancy. Docs don't know your body like you do.
Ive missed this months period and last month had a bit of spotting.
ive never taken birth control or firtility drugs. My period always been like clockwork. I had pap a exam 3 months ago that came back normal so I'm ruleing out PCOS for now and just taking good care of my self through good whole foods and lots of water.
im 35 so there's a possiabiaty that I'm having a phantom pregnancy. Tbh I hope this is the case. However, my body saying pregnant. :/
