Yes its possible (I asked this question the other day because I got positive HPTs & BFN bloodwork back.) FRERS measure 12mui of hcg if Im correct and the bloodtest measures 25mui for it to come back positive usually,  anything less then that is considered Negative by most labs so UNLESS you have a quantitive one done that tells you exact numbers. then its possible. But the standard hcg bloodtest is qualitive and just says yes/no and FRERS hcg measurement of 12 mui is usually much more sensitive.   Im still waiting to get my quantitive one back. :(

Quoting jessecia:

She said it perfect. Ask your dr if they did a qualitative or quantitative blood draw. If they did quantitative then your numbers may still be low.

Did they check to see your hcg levels or was it the blood test that says positive or negative
