Medical abortion with Mifepristone + Misoprostol might not work up to 7% of cases. But even after the successful medical abortion up to 3 weeks pregnancy strip test may be positive, because you still have high level of pregnancy hormones.

Make sure to check successful pregnancy termination with a pregnancy strip test after 3 weeks of medical abortion.

But if you want to check it before 3 weeks, please see your doctor for ultrasound. Ultrasound can accurately determine a successful pregnancy termination after 1 week of abortion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
