Trying to conceive, noticed implantation bleeding, no periods, negative blood hcG and urine test. Pregnancy chance?

I m a 28 y/o female, TTC for a couple of months now. My LMP was 1/12. Ovulated 1/27. Started what I thought was implantation spotting on 2/4 (only noticed after using the bathroom, saw spotting on tissue after wiping), however this lasted for 8 days, until 1/12. Period was due on 2/14, but nothing arrived. Today is now the 15th, still nothing. Had a blood hCG test done yesterday, result was negative. Urine hCG test this morning gave negative result as well. My plan is to wait a week and have another blood hCG test done. But in the meantime, I m concerned. Of coarse I want to be pregnant - however, is it possible for me to be, even with negative blood hCG results? And is there anything else that can explain the 8 days of spotting, never having gotten a positive hCG test, and now being late for my period? Thank you.

Thank you for your query.
Unfortunately, no, with a negative blood HCG result, chances of pregnancy are nil.
I think you had an early period in the form of light spotting only.
THis could happen due to stress, anxiety, emotional disturbances, weight fluctuations, thyroid disorder, endometriosis, uterine fibroids or cervical growths.
Consult your gynecologist to know the exact cause.
Also, for conception, maintain ideal BMI, exercise regularly, have nutritious diet and take regular folic acid supplements.
ALso, if you fail to conceive after trying for a year, consult an infertility specialist and have detailed work up.
Take care.
