thank you for your query.
You cannot handle a miscarriage at home like this.
You need to consult a gynecologist.
Sometimes, you might be having an ectopic pregnancy, which could be fatal .
A miscarriage might need medical or surgical aid to expedites its completion, in absence of which, you put yourself at risk for severe bleeding and hemorrhage, infection and other grave complications.
After a properly conducted abortion, it takes a few days to weeks for the hormone levels to drop
You cannot rely on a pregnancy test to confirm the abortion, an ultrasound will confirm that the uterine cavity is empty.
Take care.
