Question: I have taken 3 pregnancy test and they were all positive. A day later I started bleeding so I called the dr they wanted a blood test and I just got the results and they said the blood test was negative. I'm 17 days late on my period. I'm so confused could I still be pregnant?

Brief Answer:
yes it could be.

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,
Welcome to HCM,

The best thing for you to do now would be to do a b HCG blood test and repeat it after 48 hours.

This will give us a proper clue if you are pregnant or not. There are a few possible things that could have happen.

The fact that your urine pregnancy test was positive and then you had bleeding, would make it a chemical pregnancy.

The other possibility is it was a very early spontaneous miscarraige.

It could also be a threaten miscarraige and it's possible in that case that the pregnancy may continue.

So please get a HCG blood test done immediately, if negetive means you are not pregnant, but if positive and the value doubles in 48 hours it means you are and that the pregnancy is fine.

If the value of HCG crosses 1000 you could get an ultrasound done to confirm the location of pregnancy.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
