User :   I had all symptoms of pregnancy. Even the doctor said that i must be pregnant though he asked to take a blood test next week. This morning when i woke up, i had bleeding suddenly. It was not a bleeding like regular period. so i went to the hosptial ..took a blood test and they said blood test is negative for pregnancy. They also they i did not miscarry. Would there be a possiblity that the test is falst ? Maybe i'm taking the test too early? Please advise.
