Pregnant ?'s: Pregnancies outside the uterus can have inconsistent test results, so it is possible that the "positives" were recorded just prior to cessation of pregnancy ("miscarriage"). Most spontaneous miscarriages occur very early, and often are "disguised" as simply delayed menses. The good news is that most subsequent pregnancies are generally of normal length.
