The pregnancy test may still show positive since it measures the hormone levels. The levels will gradually reduce. But you should have had a proper bleed. Like a period. It usually may continue for a few days. If you had inadequate bleeding,there may be a chance of incomplete abortion. If you have bled for a few days,then do a usg after 4 weeks to check for products of conception. Dont rely on the urine pregnancy test. A blood test is more accurate.
