  • In early pregnancy you can, other than that it would have to be the labs error. lol Trust me, my husband is a lab tech.

  • If it is very early on in the pregnancy there may not be enough hcg in the blood to be detectable. Other then that, I really don't know how it could occur other then an error on the part of the people taking the blood or handling the test.

  • Yes, if the quality controls on the test are faulty. This can happen with any test including HIV tests.

  • Probably not unless they weren't running it for a pregnancy test for some reason.
