Hi Shweta,

Thanks for writing in.
The reason behind it could be either false positive pregnancy test or real pregnancy with low hcg levels.
False positive test could be due to following reasons-
Hcg containing drugs, less urine drops used in test, test read after long time, proteinuria, chemical pregnancy [early miscarriage causing periods to come at regular interval].
Even low hcg levels can cause similar reaction.
I would recommend you- not to worry. Pregnancy is nature gift to women, wait for 2 more days without stress and take things positively.
I hope this information helps.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
