Specializes in Fertility Medicine

Possible: The home pregnancy test are not always accurate. You could be pregnant with a very low level of HCG (hormone of pregnancy) and this will not be detected by a home pregnancy test. You can ask your obgyn or fertility specialist to order a blood work for HCG level as well as progesterone, this will tell you more precisely if you are pregnant and/or whether you truly ovulated.
