Pregnancy test positive, then negative

Dear Dr Amy,

I have missed my period by 4weeks. I did a pregnancy test a week ago and it was positive. I did another three tests a few days later and they were negative. How can that happen? I have booked in to see my G.P , but wondered whether this indicates a serious illness or could I be pregnant?


Dear BH,

It sounds like you may have had a chemical pregnancy. A chemical pregnancy is actually a very early miscarriage. You got pregnant and the pregnancy implanted, but stopped growing at an extremely early stage. Most women don't know that they have had a chemical pregnancy. They just notice that their period has been heavier or a bit later than usual.
