I had an abortion when I was one month pregnant. Why is the pregnancy test still showing positive?

I'm not sure how to tell if the abortion is complete.

The level of HGH, which is what causes a positive pregnancy test, remains high for a few weeks after abortion, even one done very early one. Rest assured that the abortion is "complete."

It takes a while to rid your body of pregnancy hormones after an abortion. It could take up to a few weeks for the hormone to get out of your system.

If you had the abortion the abortion is probably taking it's course. If it's been really soon since you had it your HCG levels probably haven't had time to go back to normal yet. When your hormones levels are high the pregnancy test will still detect them and will say you're pregnant.
