Five weeks pregnant and varied results in HPT

Patient: I am approx 5 weeks and last Saturday had 2 positive hpts.  Had an extra hpt so I decided to take it this morning and got a negative, I’m still feeling pregnant ( morning sickness, soreness, etc) what could this mean?

 

 

Doctor: Since your home pregnancy tests are showing varied results, I would advise getting a blood test done for pregnancy, whic ch is more accurate. These tests measure serum hCG (pregnancy hormone) as it is more sensitive and will detect pregnancy earlier than a urine test.
