I was late for my period and around my 31st day spotting started. Usually, the first half of the pad was covered partially. But, when I checked it showed strong positive lines whenever I checked. But, now on my 44th day, the spotting has stopped and when I checked it showed a faint positive on the card. I am scared. What am I to do? Any idea why it happened this way?


After a pregnancy has progressed, less HCG can be picked up by pregnancy tests, which may be the reason for the faint line. The spotting concerns me though. While it may just be normal spotting from the pregnancy, it could be something else. Please speak with your doctor.
