Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The weakly positive test that you have got could be due to an early pregnancy or a chemical pregnancy. The mild brownish spotting could be due to an implantation bleeding. You need to wait for 2-3 more days and if the bleeding increases with a negative pregnancy test after 3 days then it was a chemical pregnancy.
You can also confirm it now by getting serum beta HCG levels evaluated. Doubling of titres in 48 hours is suggestive of a viable pregnancy.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
You can check again on Sunday and see if the second line - test line on the kit is darker then that in the previous test.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Hi doc,
I had checked via pregnancy kit that I was pregnant on 23rd july . In the evening, black spots appear. I ignored. On the 24th july , black spots became more . In the evening, there are red bloods start to flow and lower left pelvic starts to feel poking feeling leaving on-off pain feeling. I rushed to the hospital and they quickly rush me to the resus critical side as afraid its ectopic or , miscarriage or life-threatened miscarriage. Ultrasound done, cant detect any bleed from fallopian tube. Urine test neg but beta hcg bld test is 35. Cant figure out wats wrong. Till now there bleeding abit, a quarter in my pad. Awaiting for monday for checkup at qynae for bld test, urine test and ultrasound. Im pretty worried. Right now im feeling very tired and juz feeling like sleeping the whole day... :(

It is good that an ectopic pregnancy has been ruled out. Since the HCG levels are at 35, it is more likely to be due to a chemical pregnancy.
It is best to wait till Monday for detailed evaluation and repeat beta HCG levels.
