Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

A pregnancy test could possibly be positive if you are miscarrying due to the pregnancy hormone (hcg) that these tests look for, still being in your system. However, you may also be simply having a very heavy period with clots.

If you feel you may be miscarrying, it's a good idea to call your doctor.

We wish you the best,
