producing hcg B★B's Mama 2 kids; :), Tx, United States 11843 posts

Is it possible that some women dont produce enough hcg to detect early as 5 days or less before AF arrives? With my daughter I tested 3 days after AF was due and got my positive. I didnt test 5 days before so I dont know if I would've gotten a positive or not. Im 10dpo n tested negative with an equate frer n first signal.

Yes very possible because ovulation could have happened later, which would mean you didn't conceive until later

Did you test days leading up to your BFP?

HCG might not show up in urine for several reasons. Late ovulation or diluted urine or even just a lower level of hcg for the pregnancy. There's a huge range of 'normal' levels of hcg. Some pregnancies just produce less hcg in general. Always use first morning urine if you're testing early. That's most accurate. Some women also don't release a lot of hcg in their urine and get later than average positives.

With my ds I didnt know I was pregnant until i was a little more than 2 months. Took two test both negative. day after and week after af was late and both were negative. So I just figured I was having weird cycle or missing a cycle.

even if you did, conception is anywhere from 6-12 dpo, so yes you still could have conceived later
