help me!!!

I was diagnosed with positve vdrl (1:2 dilution) but negative tpha,at the same time, I was 4weeks pregnant. My doctor told me that the positive vdrl result was due to the hormones that are present during pregnancy. She also confirmed that it was only false-positive vdrl since the tpha was negative.

About after a week, I had a miscarriage. After a week again, my vdrl was still positive and tpha negative.

What are the possible reasons for these? Is it true that my positive vdrl could be linked to my pregnancy?

Please help....
