Hi i got a positive pregnancy test last week

Patient

Q: Hi i got a positive pregnancy test last week then a few days later a negative. Started bleeding 4 days ago nothing heavy but had a few stringy clots now slow right down to a small brown patch on pad. Any ideas appreciated?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

The reason for the above symptoms could be a chemical pregnancy, where there is only rise in beta hCG. Thus, the test is positive, but there is no actual pregnancy or sac inside, after a while the hormone settle down and tests come negative, or it could be a blighted ovum or early miscarriage as well.
Consult a Gynecologist for an examination to be on the safer side.

Hope this helped.
Regards
