Probably a lot of detail will help your advise.

So last Sunday I found out I was pregnant after 5 years of trying obviously a happy moment.... Did 8 tests all said pregnant.... And 1-2 weeks so 3-4 but last period was 18th November so to doctors it was 6 weeks , 7 weeks tomorrow.
Friday night I had some light brown bleeding, started to worry, called nhs direct and said unless gets heavy or in pain then not a lot they can do so wait and if heavier then go to a&e. So I had a spare test did it and said not pregnant. By the morning the blood had gone red and was stringy but still only visible when wiping none on pants. Did another test and said pregnant again. So got some hope. Then Saturday there was some blood on my pants and was quite a lot of blood as I wiped so went to out of hour walk in on Saturday night and they basically said nothing they can do and see if bleeding gets heavier or more painful and try to see the doctor in the week. So still have bleeding some that looks like clots but seems to be actually stringy stuff in clumps. Am scared to do another test and have read it could say pregnant still even though not coz still in system. Going to go to doctors tomorrow but has anyone experienced this and still been pregnant?

Bleeding now still and it's not like a period where it would soak your pants..

To be honest with you, from my (limited) experience this sounds like a miscarriage. I obviously can't be certain but I would prepare myself for that being what you're told.
If that's the case, I'm so sorry.
I hope someone with medical expertise will come on the thread for you, to give more reliable advice.

Just done a test and no cross to show pregnant so assume I'm not which means that I have lost it

I bled with both of mine, have you googled implantation bleeding seeing as you are not too sure of your exact dating?

If you are getting negative tests now I'm afraid that sounds like you are miscarrying. It can take a while after the pregnancy ends for levels to drop to zero, and as the sensitivity of pregnancy tests varies you xan get the situation where some already say negative and more sensitive ones still read positive, but a week after your first positive test you should be getting a strong positive on all of them if your HCG levels were rising normally.
It's worth going to the GP to get it entered on your medical records, or see if they'll do a phone consultation today as there is nothing they can actually do, they may refer you to an early pregnancy unit for a scan though some units won't scan before 6 weeks. I wasn't clear whether you agreed with the Clearblue 1-2 weeks post ov because of long cycles, or whether you think you should be closer to the 7 weeks based on LMP (which only works for a 28 day cycle)
On a very practical note you need to use pads rather than tampons for any bleeding and it's ok to take painkillers if you have cramping, you might want to stick to paracetamol until you are certain what is happening as it is safe in pregnancy.
I'm v sorry you find yourself in this situation, it is particularly hard when you have waited so long for a BFP. I'm sure you will find it very tough emotionally, there is lots of support available here and the Miscarriage Association is also v good. flowers

Thank you, I think I was 4-5 weeks so I know it was early days but it's the first time I have ever seen a positive on a pregnancy test so was very happy.. It obviously wasn't meant to be. Off to doctors today just to check things.

How did it go?
My implantation bleeding was from 5-6 weeks, every day.
Hoping you are ok
