Thanks for writing to us.
Since the blood HCG levels were not suggestive of pregnancy, she is not pregnant. Urine tests are less confirmatory than blood HCG levels. The delay in periods are likely to be due to a hormonal disturbance.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Thanks for your query,
You have not mentioned details like LMP or period of gestation.As you got two positive tests of pregnancy test, so i presume that there was pregnancy.But there was bleeding ,so it may lead to abortion. Pregnancy test may remain positive even after abortion for some time. So i will suggest you to undergo USG scan to see the actual status and then proceed accordingly.

Hope it helps..
