Hi, I had an abortion on January 9th. I just
Your HCG is in a grey area - please see below.
HCG levels can take anywhere from 9 - 35 days to return to normal after a miscarriage or abortion.
But HCG levels between 6-24 can also indicate early pregnancy.
So you are in a grey area where it would be hard to tell if this is residual HCG or early pregnancy.
I recommend that you have it retested in the next 2 weeks to see if it is decreasing or increasing.
I also strongly recommend that, unless you want to get pregnant, you use protection when having intercourse. At the minimum, if you don't want to use a hormonal contraceptive or IUD, would be condoms plus spermicide. Because otherwise, you will get pregnant again, and repeated abortions are hard on the body.
I hope this information helps.
Please let me know if I can provide further information or clarification.
