Unlikely: If what you're saying is that you had a positive pregnancy test.... and then after that test you had 3 days of bleeding and then you took another test and it's negative, then likely you aren't pregnant anymore. You can take a confirmatory test (I'd wait 3-5 days), and make sure, but sounds like you miscarried. See a physician if you're worried or bleeding continues for > 7 days. ...Read more

The negative: It is common to have an initial "chemical pregnancy" where the sperm and egg meet and begin the implantation process only to quickly fail. The result is an initial elevation in beta human chorionic gonadotropin, or hcg, followed by a "failure" of the implantation process to complete resulting in the negative tests. If these were subsequent to the positive test it is likely you are not pregnant. ...Read more

You need to read the test within the prescribed time frame. If you let the test stick sit around it may look positive. Do the test 4-5 days after a missed period. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

Why did I get two positive pregnancy test at home and blood tested negative? How is that possible?
Different thresholds: It is possible to have positive urine and negative blood. The home urine tests are pretty sensitive- namely they don't miss much. They are looking for a HCG of 20 miu/ml and the blood test is looking for a level of 25 miu/ml. So if you were super early and your level was 22 miu/ml your urine would be positive and the blood negative. Repeat the blood in 1 week and then see, good chance its + ! ...Read more
Im getting a faint positive pregnancy test in the evening but when I do it in the morning i get a negative. Why is this?
That can happen: That can happen if the urine in the evening is more concentrated than the urine in the morning, or if a woman is pregnant and her HCG level rose enough during the day to make the evening test result positive. Sometimes, it happens randomly, if one of the tests did not work properly. If worried about pregnancy, one can repeat the test in 1-2 weeks. If pregnant, it should be very positive by then. ...Read more
