Thanks for your query.
Almost a month after your surgical abortion, it is highly unlikely that the urine test would be positive now.
I hope you did check after your surgical abortion , that the procedure was complete, so that a test would not continue to be positive.
Another possibility is that it is positive from a fresh pregnancy.
You need to consult a gynecologist at the earliest to know the cause.
Please do so .
Take care.
