Question: miscarriage?

 DBH4269 - Thu Oct 27, 2005 9:41 am

I took 5 home pregency test and a blood test through my dr office that was a postivie that I was pregnant, I started bleeding, 5 days later they did another test which was negative, Could I have miscarried or were all the test wrong? I thought the hormones would stay in your body longer if I had actually been pregnant? Thank you for your help.

User avatar Hi DBH4269,
In my opinion, I would find it unlikely that all of the positives were incorrect especially the blood test. Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) increases as pregnancy advances. My sincere apologies as it indeed does sound as if you most likely had a miscarriage considering the most recent test was negative.
