First its not likely that you will get 3 false positive tests.Also if you had aborted in jan then the test would be weakly positive or even negative by now.I need you to understand that by now any pregnancy sac should have shown up and if not then its not a good sign since your test is positive.You need to rule out ectopic pregnancy.Take a blood test this time and repeat the scan.Also get beta hcg levels done.See a gynaecologist asap.
