Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. Since you may be losing blood you may wish to take oral iron supplements available over the counter. Consult this site for more information on this topic.

Neg pregnancy test after bleeding and previous pos test; symptoms worsened and no clots passed. Help?

Neg pregnancy test after bleeding and previous pos test; symptoms worsened and no clots passed. Help?

What symptoms: From what you described you had spontaneous loss of an early pregnancy. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. Usually the only manifestation is a slightly heavy, delayed period. If your symptoms persist beyond two weeks, it would be prudent to see a doctor, sooner if you have fever.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

You probably are: Since your urine pregnancy test is positive and bleeding can and does often occur during pregnancy, you are probably still pregnant. False positive tests are relatively rare.

A correctly done urine test will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period.

Testing too Early: This was, as you now know, a wasted effort and money. First, there is not such thing as implantation bleeding. This mythic thing is an internet and false 'truth'.

Third, if you were pregnant it takes probably another seven days for an implanted fetus to have grown big enough to be sharing blood and possibly be testable. ...Read more
