Thanks for your query.
I hope the abortion was performed under medical guidance.
ALso you have not clarified whether it was a medical abortion / surgical termination.
In either case, chances of failure are there, although remote.
As the pregnancy test is still positive, it means that the abortion failed and the pregnancy has continued.
There is no point in continuing the pregnancy, as both medical abortion and surgical instruments damage the developing baby, even if the procedure fails.
please consult your gynecologist urgently, for a surgical evacuation of the pregnancy.
take care.
