If after confirming the pregnancy with a positive blood test, the beta-hCG hormone begins to decrease or the pregnancy test is directly negative, it is because the woman has suffered a biochemical abortion or microabortion. The embryo stops developing in its first weeks and is expelled with bleeding that is sometimes even confused with menstruation.
I'm 6 weeks pregnant and now the test is negative, what can it be?
