i discovered i was pregnant 2 months ago, it was a total shock as i was on the pill. i decided not to go ahead with the pregnacy as i feel i am not ready. i had the abortion 15 days ago. i bled for 5 days. i went straight to the doctors and went back on the pill. stupidly i had unprotected sex before i had been taking the pill for 7 days so it was not effective. i have since missed the date i should have come on my period, i have done two tests both of which said positive. is it possible i still have hormones in my body from my last pregnancy? and do periods carry on as normal after an abortion? i need advice please
yes it is possible to still have HcG in your body...I wouldnt think that you would still show positive, but also I have no experience there so I know I am not much help, sorry! But as far as getting pregnant immediately, yes, that is very possible if you were ovulating then...I know after a MC people get pregnant within a few weeks....I would take another test in a day or two and see what it does. Good luck
Did you have a D&C? If it's only been 15 days, then my guess would be you still have the hormone in your system. You won't ovulate until the hormones are down to zero. Do you have a follow up apt to make sure everything was removed?
its been almost 3 weeks since i had the abortion, they told me not to have sex until id stopped bleeding, so when i had i didnt think it would be a problem.
i had an internal examination to make sure everything was removed and told everything was ok and i didnt need to return to hospital. thanks for the advice everyone...
