Thanks for posting on HCM,
You are right about home test kits not always 100% accurate at early periods of pregnancy
. Spotting might still be a sign of implantation
bleeding and that you are effectively pregnant. But if you are bleeding it might also be a sign of early pregnancy complication such as possible miscarriage
, ectopic pregnancy etc. So there will be a need to rule out possibility of pregnancy first and since you seem obviously worried, I will advise that you go to the hospital to get checked up by a doctor or gynobs who can run a serum beta HCG
test ( which has high specificity all almost all stages of pregnancy) and also perform a pelvic ultrasound
(which will further determine if there are any products of conception that might indicate pregnancy). If you are unable to go to the hospital for reasons (known only to you), then you can wait for about 7-10 days then redo the pregnancy test (but risk is that if you have ectopic pregnancy, then it might rupture and complicate your state).
Hope this helps and wish you the best.
