Is it possible for a woman to not produce HCG? I don't know, maybe. Is it possible to be pregnant and not producing HCG? No. It is possible to produce a low level of the hormone, which would give false negatives on pregnancy tests. The level of HCG also start to drop off after the first trimester, so home pregnancy tests aren't reliable later in pregnancy. If you think you might be pregnant you should see your doctor for a blood test.
