i got a positive home pregnancy test,, i have many typical symptoms that come with being pregnant.
But when i went to the clinic and had a blood test done it came out negative.
I had gone in because i had alot of heavy cramping and some bleeding...
I could only be about 3 and a half weeks pregnant,,, but i'm confused,,, could a blood test come up negative and i still be pregnant? and is bleeding normal with pregnancy,, could it have been a miscarriage?

It is possible that this is a very early miscarriage, yes.

Blood tests are very accurate.

If you have any questions about whether or not this is a miscarriage and where you should go from here, you need to see your doctor.

well is it possible that it could still be there? I have a doctors appointment soon, so i can ask then. But Could it be possible to be pregnant and bleed at the same time?
And could bleeding down there scew the blood tests accuracy? I'm really worried

It's possible, i suppose, but not very likely ... Especially with vaginal bleeding and a negative pregnancy test (blood).

Bleeding is not going to screw with the results of the blood test. Again, blood tests are very accurate ... They're more sensitive to the pregnancy hormone (hCG) than home pregnancy tests. If you got a negative blood test, i would be inclined to believe that over the urine tests.

Also, if you're bleeding as you would w/ a normal period, you cannot be pregnant. When women have bleeding during pregnancy is it is usually pretty light and not like a normal period.

I think there are a lot of signs here pointing to you NOT being pregnant ... Is there a reason you still think you are? Are you wanting to be pregnant?
