Heavy Period, positive pregnancy test
I have had 2 periods lasting a month each in May and again in July but yet I have a positive result on a pregnancy test. Is there reason for concern. The first day of the periods were extremely heavy, with a single big blood clot then blood runs clean after the 1st day, after that the period have been very light, like spotting brownish. Is there reason to be concerned?
It sounds like a threatened miscarriage. See your doctor straight away.
