Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be detected

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
The sign of pregnancy can be detected based on time of abortion.
Abortion done before 4-5 weeks of pregnancy cannot be detected. Ultrasound may lead to detection of enlargement of uterus.
Without complains and suggestions of patient it is hard to diagnose abortion done two weeks earlier.
Please specify the concern.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.

Due to a few issues at home me and my husband has decided on an abortion which I got done in my 6th week of pregnancy . But I have been diagnosed by an ovarian cyst of 8 cm 4 months ago and have my next scan in 2 days . I am worried that since the doctor is a close family friend if she diagnoses the abortion she will inform my in laws which will cause a lot of issue's to us

Brief Answer:
Follow instructions as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
If surgical D and C was done properly after abortion, and no complain of bleeding after that now, then ultrasound will not be able to pick any thing.
Alternatively, you can postpone the ultrasound planned for cyst evaluation for 2-3 weeks.
Even, if you have to undergo ultrasound presently and doctor raises query about pregnancy status, then just tell her that you had some period irregularity with heavy bleeding. Many a time, abortion can occur unnoticed due to some congenital malformations.
