11 days before had medical abortion took pregnancy test both blood and urine both are negative.what are my chances of being pregnant with etopic pregn?

Tests are accurate: Home or clinic pregnancy tests are very accurate, but if done too early, a negative result may be due to testing too soon after sex. A correctly done home urine test will give a reliable result by 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have happened). If there has been no sexual activity since an abortion, and pregnancy tests are currently negative, those tests are presumed very accurate. ...Read more

How not have a baby during pregnancy without abortion? Which you can do at home to secretly lose your baby? Please help I don't want to be pregnant and I want to lose it.
