Your choice : If your pregnancy test is negative and you have repeated it 2-3 days later you can rest assured that you are not pregnant. It is your decision whether or not you want it removed. Your doctor was probably trying to help you avoid a teen pregnancy but ultimately the option for removal is yours. You may want to go to a different doctor for a second opinion.
