Hello
Thanks for your query.
A pregnancy test is not the method of choice for confirming the completion of an abortion.
The completion of an abortion is confirmed only by visiting a gynecologist, and going for an internal check up, or better still, a transvaginal ultrasound to check that the uterine cavity is empty and there are no retained products of conception inside.
You could be suffering from minimal retained products, or having a pelvic infection after the abortion.
This could produce the symptoms you describe.
Please see your doctor for an evaluation for the same.
Take care.
