Thanks for posting your query.
The faintly positive pregnancy tests before the beginning of your periods is likely to be due to a chemical pregnancy. A chemical pregnancy is the clinical term used for a very early miscarriage.
Most chemical pregnancies are due to chromosomal problems in the developing fetus. Other possible causes are inadequate uterine lining, uterine abnormalities both congenital or acquired like fibroids, low hormone levels, luteal phase defect or certain infections.
Potential treatments include vitamin B6 (at least 50mg a day), progesterone cream, and baby aspirin. Be sure to discuss potential treatments with your doctor.
If infection is the cause, antibiotics prescribed by your Doctor can help.
Since the pregnancy test has turned negative, it means you are not pregnant now. You can confirm this by getting serum beta HCG evaluated.
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.
