OK, i am over a week late on my period and i have pregnancy symptoms! I've been doing a lot of research and i read about how to take home blood tests! So i took my blood and put it on a home pregnancy strip and it came out positive, but when i urinate they come out negative! Could it be that there's enough HCG in my blood to come out positive, but not enough in my urine Question What are the odds of this being right,should i go to the doctor or just wait it out to see if it eventually comes out positive! The reason i am asking is because i was pregnant b4 and i didn't go to the doctors, and i was 3 months by the time i went and ended up miscarrying, and i don't want to go through that again!

You were three months pregnant, miscarried and didn't go to the doctor? You should have. There is a risk of death from women bleeding to death when they miscarry. There is also a risk of not everything being expelled and the potential for infection, etc.

Putting your blood on a Home Pregnancy Test doesn't work, you need to use it in the way the instructions tell you to use it.

Go see your doctor.

i was in the emergency room as i was miscarrying! They did an immediate D&C! But i never went to a DR prior to that!
