I need some advice. I have done a clear blue test 4.5 days ago it said 2 - 3 weeks pregnant. I went to the doctor with a bottle of my urine. She dipped her own pregnancy test stick in and said it had come out with a weak positive and hence i was miscarrying (chemical prengnancy). I then went and bought another clear blue test and a boots own brand. I dripped both in the bottle and both come up positive. The clear blue still at 2 - 3 weeks adn the boots with a clear pregnant line. I am worried about what to think. I am 45 - i know that is old but can anyone help me.

Im not a medical person and I dont want to get your hopes up but From what you've posted here, I'd say your dr is possibly talking bollocks.

Different tests have different sensitivities and even different batches show different strengths of line.

Have you had any sign of AF? Any reason to think the dr is right? How late are you?

Hello, I'd say pregnant by what you have said. I read a thread on here recently and another lady had the same issue. Apparently the NHS use really cheap pregnancy tests that aren't as sensitive as the ones you can buy. Good luck x

What is AF?

fwiw The twice i've been pregnant i've waited til a week overdue af then had a 'weak' positive. As in second line barely visible. And that's on the super duper expensive sensitive tests. Hope that helps. Xxx

AF is short for Aunt Flo.

Try to relax and not get to stressed, I know that's easy for me to say but you don't want to make yourself ill.

It's really really common for doctors' tests to not be as dark as ones you can buy nowadays as CristaBell says. If Clearblue says 2-3 weeks, that's a decent amount of bHCG in your wee.

GPs especially can talk such bollocks when it comes to pregnancy - some (obviously not all, some are fantastic!) can have really fixed opinions based on old textbooks or their own limited experiences and refuse to consider anything else. Can you get a second opinion, or rather, see a different GP?

Good luck!!

Hi tonianita how are things? Did you get a second opinion from the doctors? I hope all has worked out well. x
