Is it possible that the pregnancy test is negative at 5 weeks?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 09/22/2017

In the fifth week of pregnancy the embryo has already been implanted in the uterus. At this point, the embryo begins to secrete the hormone beta-hCG, known as the pregnancy hormone, which is the one detected in a pregnancy test. Therefore, if the woman is really pregnant, the test will be positive in the fifth week. However, there can always be failures and therefore it is recommended to repeat the test after a few days in case of doubt.
