Thank you for choosing HCM

The pregnancy test that you are using tests for the hCG levels in the urine. The hCG levels will take some time to come down after an abortion and even in a pregnancy. If the Doctor who did the abortion is sure of it and has confirmed the abortion, then you can take the medication.

If not, you need to get an ultrasound done to confirm the pregnancy. All the best.
Hope this helps you
