False Negative Blood Test???
Hi Ladies

Has anybody had experience with a false negative blood test?

I am on Day 39 of my cycle and definitely ovulated (ovulation test) and did the 'deed' on the relevant days.

I have all the preggie signs (no period, sore boobs, slight nausea etc), yet the blood test was negative.

I have PCOS but according to my ovulation test I definitely ovulated.

I have had two 23 day cycles before this cycle and ovulated +/- the same time in both cycles as well as in this cycle (Day 10 - 12).

Is there any way that you can ovulate but not get your period and not be pregnant or could there a chance that the blood test was incorrect?

Also, I have had slight spotting, here and there this cycle.

Thanks for the advice.

If you had a negative blood test on Day 28, it may have been a bit early. Try repeating it now.
