Since the first test showed a weak positive, it is possible that you could be pregnant. The second test, taken so soon after the first one, cannot pick up the results accurately as the hormone levels will not be sufficient. For a urine test to be positive in such a situation, you should use early morning sample with 6-8 hours collection and use it within 15 minutes after collection. You may repeat the test after 4 days and go for a blood test and a sonogram if still doubtful. Please get further advice from your doctor. Take care.

First of all, do a blood test for beta HCG or USG pelvis to confirm intrauterine pregnancy. Early pregnancy test may give false negative result.

In exclusion of pregnancy, other reasons are hormonal imbalance, stress/ anxiety, thyroid problem, wt gain/extreme loss, irregular eating habits etc.

Do some investigations to rule out underlying pathology like thyroid profile & other hormone assay etc. Regarding this, you consult with your doctor to take suggestive measures.

Avoid stress, take healthy diet with iron supplements, control body wt and need adequate sleeping.
