Unsure: First you can get false positives with urine tests so blood tests are always more accurate. Second it is possibler you had an early miscarriage and that explains what happened. If your urine test is still positive after the negative er test i would see your doctor.

Contaminant?: There may be something that is causing a comtamination of the result. Hcg is a hormone, but it can have cross reactivity with other hormones in the blood in some instances. Fertility drugs and medications that contain HCG might interfere with pregnancy tests for hcg. Perhaps an antibody in the blood could be interfering also.
