  • Usually it's because they tested too early, didn't use the test properly, etc. Sometimes you can get a defective test as well.

  • the hcg levels could be too low(too early to test) or they are not pregnant

  • Rare occasions because the placenta is only making enough HCG to support the growing embryo. Not putting out enough excess to register a test.
