Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Firstly, the pregnancy test is positive.

After an abortion pregnancy test may remain positive for 6 weeks. But it is impossible to be positive for that previous pregnancy.

Just do an ultrasound scan of whole abdomen to rule out pregnancy and any chance of ectopic pregnancy.
