I had a surgical abortion 6week ago and i took a pregnancy test today and its still positive.Is ir normal?

If you engaged in unprotected sex, you could be pregnant again, so you should get quantitative blood testing to confirm what is going on. ...Read more

Likely New Pregnancy: Three months after a D&C your HCG levels should be <2. Unless you have retained tissue or a molar pregnancy which has turned into gtn (gestational trophoblastic neoplasia), both which are fairly rare after surgical evacuation of the uterus.
