Hi i got a positive pregnancy test last week

Patient : 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 :   Hello, Thanks for the query. The reason for the above symptoms could be a chemical pregnancy, where there is only ri se 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
