Faint positive FRER & negative blood test on same day?

Hi ladies, I'm wondering if anyone can share their thoughts or experiences related to what I'm going through at the moment. 
Late last week I just felt that I was pregnant even though I would have only been several days past ovulation. I did a frer on Saturday and Sunday, both faintly positive. And I mean, they were squinters lol.

This morning I went to my doctor and had a blood test done. When I got home I (stupidly) thought I would use the last frer I had left, because, why not. Well the second line came up immediately. It's faint, still a bit of a squinter but far more obvious than the ones from the weekend. Then 2 hours later my doctor called and said my pregnancy blood test was negative! I'm so confused!
she said my hcg level is less than 0.5 (or 5, whatever it's meant to be lol!). If it's that low on a blood test, how on earth am I getting even a faintly positive frer?!

  • Thanks! I think I used to old frer (that is, not the one with the curved handle). It was just the normal old one if that makes sense.

  • The old FRER has the same problem. We only have the straight handle here and it's also notorious for fake lines.

  • I'm assuming it's a chemical pregnancy. Which isn't much better than indent lines really, considering this will be my second chemical in three months. They definitely weren't indent lines as they were pink. Faint but definitely pink and identical to what my positive tests looked like with my two successful pregnancies.

    My doctor rang back and said to have another blood test in a week if AF hasn't come (due tomorrow). Thanks for your input ladies.

    @PaukMeKiande Nothing, really. A WK used some slightly inappropriate language.  I think bc we all quoted her the BG took them all down. Not really sure, I didn't think it was that bad, she was just being rude, but I've seen way worse on here.

  • @PaukMeKiande The second TOU is still showing up in ladymillil's quote. I didn't see the first one but I'm imagining it was something along the same lines. If the WK want's to give us a 3rd I think that will be her gone so WK please do.
