Can Hcg tests be wrong? My doctor told me it came back negative, but it still feels like a positive...Am I just wishing?

Can the Hcg be wrong or is it always right? Can someone be pregnant and the test still come back negative?

  • It would be rare but I assume anything could happen. See if you can get an ultrasound, there would be no doubt then.

  • I took a home test and had it come up pos, but when I went the doc it was neg. Two weeks later I went to another doc for the same symptoms and it came back pos. It really depends on the lab techs running the test, and how far along you are. Its rare to get a neg on the Hcg test but it can happen.
