Doctor: Hello ,If your urine pregnancy kits test have shown a varied result and the last test being positive , then it is sug gested that a more specific test called serum beta hcg test may be performed. If the levels of hcg are more than 1 , then it would confirm pregnancy for sure.If pregnancy is confirmed then this bleeding you are experiencing is likely an abortion , hence to confirm the same an ultrasound pelvis would be required. I suggest you visit your ER for the excessive bleeding then in emergency , i don’t think they would wait till 9th feb for the ultrasound. If its an abortion then you may need a dilatation and curettage to remove the products of conception completely.I hope i have answered your query in detail,wishing you good health,regards
