Depend on baby's age: The medicine is by prescription, so a woman goes to her Ob-Gyn doctor (or a women's clinic) to be examined for it. Whether or not medicine can be used also depends on the age of the baby fetus (the number of weeks pregnant). The doctor will talk with the patient to be sure that the patient is making a good permanent decision, because abortion is a hard decision for any woman or couple to make. ...Read more

Can't say for sure: It can take up to 8 weeks to completely clear HCG form blood following a termination: the higher the HCG the longer it will take. Have you had a period since the abortion? If 'no' it may still be residual, if 'yes' you probably need to follow blood levels to see what's going on. ...Read more

Residual Hcg in Body: A missed abortion is a miscarriage that has been diagnosed by ultrasound that your body has not yet expelled; it's a failed pregnancy that has been "missed." Usually your body will push the pregnancy on its own but this can take a few weeks. Some women receive misoprostol to help or undergo D&C to complete the pregnancy. Hcg starts to drop after the placenta stops growing, preg test positive still ...Read more
I had a surgical abortion 6week ago and I took a pregnancy test today and its still positive. Is ir normal?
Yes.: Hormone levels decrease by about 1/2 every 48 hours. Because they are so very high during the first trimester, and the tests available today are so sensitive, it is certainly possible to have a positive screen for as long as 60 days. 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

Unprotected sex?: Bhcg resolution varies from person to person. It may take a few days or a few weeks.

Recheck it once and week until it resolves. Start birth control to prevent another unplanned pregnancy. ...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. Check with your OB & most likely your HCG levels are increasing c/w a new pregnancy. You would know if birth control was used & if you had exposures. Good luck. ...Read more

In Sep 2016 I had a medical abortion, So in Feb 2017 took a pregnancy test and it came out positive. Is this test accurate or false positive?
Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex, so the question is could there be a new pregnancy since September. If a repeat test a few days later is still positive, then a pregnancy is the likely cause. ...Read more
I had unprotected sex 1 week after surgical abortion it's been 3weeks and I tested positive for a pregnancy test and pinkish discharge the next day?
I Doubt pregnancy: It can take weeks for the pregnancy hormone in your blood to drop to zero after you have an abortion. Its not instantaneous. Its likely that your pregnancy test is picking up the hormone from the aborted pregnancy. If you were in my office, I would get a quantitative blood pregnancy test and repeat it in 48 hours to see if it was falling or rising. A rising level might be a new pregnancy. ...Read more
