Brief Answer:
Can take 6 weeks time

Detailed Answer:
2 weeks after an abortion, the ultrasound scan would tell you if the abortion was complete, and the uterine cavity is currently empty.
Regarding the hormones, it can take up to 6 weeks for those hormones to go back to normal.
The urine test would be positive sometimes even after a month and a half, so do not worry.
Of course, you need to use protection, as you can fall pregnant during this time period.
When did you have the abortion actually ?

Brief Answer:
Some tips.

Detailed Answer:
Yes so it is alright for the test to be positive now.
IF you had a clear ultrasound scan, there is no need to confirm with a pregnancy test.
It is also common to feel depressed and blue , after an abortion.
IF this is severe, it is called post partum depression, and you need to see a psychologist for counselling.
Otherwise, try and immerse yourself in your work, hobbies, mild exercise can be begun.
Try some yoga / meditation.
Surround yourself with positive friends, positive cheerful books, soothing music and stop engaging in negative and non productive thoughts.
It is normal to feel these blues for a few months after a delivery / abortion.
Take good care of yourself.
It is important to take iron supplements as you might have bled a lot.
