HPT positive. Started bleeding and cramps. Tested positive through blood test and negative on HPT. What's going on?

I took a home pregnancy test on Saturday (1 day before period was due), it was positive. The following day I had bleeding and cramping. On Monday, I tested positive again and went to Doc who took blood test . On Wed I also tested positive but the Doc phoned and said I tested neg with hcg 1. The bleeding stopped on Mon and I am having spotting each time I need a bowel movement ( I have severe IBS ). I have a constant twinge on my lower right side. I ve been told to go back to gp if I have pain but it is only a constant twinge not pain per se. The gp wants to retest urine next Tues. I am very confused!

sometimes urine pregnancy test kits can give false positive results like,
when tested with concentrated urine,
when read after 3 minutes of adding the urine etc,
and also some blood tests are less sensitive than urine tests sometimes,
so what you can do is you repeat the tests as told by your doctor along with one ultrasound which will rule out the chances of pregnancy.
take care.
