As soon as you test positive, it is a good idea to get an appointment as soon as possible especially with your history. Sorry to be harsh but there is no point in paying for a doctor's appointment until you have missed your period. It is thought that upto 50% of pregnancies "miscarry" at the first period, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Up to about 5 years ago you wouldn'teven have known you were pregnant until you missed you period.

Take a home pregnancy test, and contact your health care provider if it's positive. If heavy bleeding lasts longer than a few days, or if it recurs on your next NuvaRing cycle, contact your health care provider.

How is miscarriages detected?

Miscarriages can be detected several ways. HCG levels - The woman takes a blood or urine quantitative pregnancy test. Then, 48 hours later, she takes another quantitative pregnancy test. If the HCG level in her blood or urine doesn't rise or actually decreases, then a miscarriage has either taken place or is in the process of taking place. An ultrasound can help determine if a miscarriage has occurred. If there is no visible fetus or embryo, depending on how far along the pregnancy is, then it can indicate a miscarriage has taken place. Signs of miscarriage include bleeding, cramping, pain, and passing "clots." If you suspect that you are having a miscarriage, you should contact your doctor.

Is there a pill that can cause a miscarriage?

there is a pill that induces or causes a miscarriage but it is only prescribed by doctors. Either this pill is prescribed for a "missed abortion", a pregnancy that has not expelled itself from the uterus that is no longer viable or for a medical abortion in which you choose to terminate the pregnancy. Contact your local abortion clinic or OBGYN to discuss your options further. It is not safe to take or do anything to try and terminate the pregnancy on your own. Good luck. Remember it is your body and your decision.

If Im still taking mini pill an had an unclear pregnancy test could it affect test?

No, it shouldn't - home pregnancy tests test for the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin. This hormone is not in birth control pills. There *are* other reasons that you could test positive for HCG, like weird tumors and such, but more likely it is just plain old early pregnancy! Test again tomorrow or in a few days, and the test should be more positive. If it doesn't, it may have been a missed pregnancy (early miscarriage/chemical pregnancy) - false positive home pregnancy tests seem to be unheard of. In case you really are pregnant, you should make sure to start on a prenatal/folic acid, contact your doctor or planned parenthood, and cut out bad habits like alcohol and smoking, no matter what your eventual decision may be. Good luck! =-]
