It becomes very confusing when the pregnancy test changes within a very short period of time. You tested yourself positive today but when you try and test after few days it turns negative. You get confused as to whether you are pregnant or the previous test gave you a false positive result. The results of a test can depend on various factors as to did you took the test very early or maybe the kit you have used was not effective. You should actually not panic in these situations, but by consciously reviewing the whole scenario you would be able to understand that what actually the problem is with your body.
Logically anyone would think that she is pregnant when the test result was positive, but before completely relying on the strip you used you should also take into account, the quality of test you have used. This is a serious thing and you should not think of saving money to buy a cheap testing kit, a kit that might have been expired or is not manufactured by a reputed company.
If the pregnancy test was earlier positive but it has turned negative now, there are great chances of miscarriage. A high number of early pregnancies converted into miscarriage without even the expectant mother ever knowing about it. Lot of women find it difficult to identify the difference between miscarriage and late period. If you test has turned negative from positive than they are high chances that you have already miscarried or it is about to happen soon. If the blood flow is heavy than it is recommended that you see your doctor to find out if you actually miscarried an early pregnancy, because you might also need medical treatment for any kind of infection.
Why Bleeding After Positive Pregnancy Test?
Ignoring the type of test you performed, one of the most common reason of bleeding after a positive pregnancy test is that you have been probably miscarrying. Research states that almost 80% of early pregnancies result into miscarriage and most women have at least one or two miscarriages before being actually able to carry it to term. Hence if you took the test and it was positive but soon after maybe within few hours or couple of days if you experience bleeding then you should surely be evaluated by the doctor to determine if you are experiencing a miscarriage.
However bleeding does not guarantee the existence of miscarrying as there could be other reasons such as you might have injured your cervix or any other tissue of your Vagina. The tissues of your reproductive tract become weak and more sensitive to injury during pregnancy. There is also an increased blood flow to your reproductive tract during these conditions to support pregnancy and hence that can also be reason of profuse bleeding. You can also suffer injuries due to sexual intercourse or small accidents like you might have unknowingly hit the dining table or any other object in your room.
If the bleeding does not stop within a day then you should see a doctor to understand better what the actual reason could be. Miscarriage once started cannot be stopped but the doctor can help you soothe your pain and operate to remove the contents of miscarriage from uterus. This operation is known as D&C and not only helps you to overcome pain but also minimizes any risk of infection or future complications.
Don't Wanna Get Pregnant?
If you failed to take proper precautions and have tested yourself positive, but you do not want to get pregnant than it is highly recommended that you consult your doctor about prescription for the same. However it would be a good practice to try and retest yourself by using a better quality test kit before seeing the doctor as you can get a false positive result from poor quality test kits.
As an alternative you can also consume our recommended amount of birth control pills which can force your uterus to shed its lining, hence preventing the pregnancy from implanting itself. This is also known as morning after pill and helps you prevent any kind of unwanted pregnancy due to having intercourse during the peak time of your cycle.
Doctor can also recommend you other options or different kind of medications for aborting the pregnancy, but these medications should only be taken under the supervision of an experienced and licensed gynecologist. You should not stop seeing your doctor after he or she has recommended the medications but it is actually important to get yourself retested to find out if those medications were actually successful or not. However before going into all these hassles just try and retest yourself with a better quality kit or have a blood test done to determine that whether you have actually conceived or not and if yes then since how long.
