welcome to HCM

Pregnancy Test is based on HCG levels in Urine. After abortion the levels of HCG Decline Slowly.Initial hCG levels are at the peak at 8 to 10 weeks LMP, as high as 150,000 mIU; therefore even 2 weeks after first-trimester abortion, the hCG levels may still be 1,500 mIU, high enough that all pregnancy tests will still be positive.

When patients have medication abortion, beta hCG continues to increase following Misoprostol but then declines precipitously after administration of misoprostol.HCG levels can remain positive for up to 6 weeks. In some cases 8 weeks. So don't worry you are not pregnant after this.

Best wishes
