A week after an abortion, the condom broke during sex. I took the emergency contractive pills, so could I be pregnant again? #1111/13

I had an abortion on November 7th, and waited a week to have sex on the 13th.  I had sex and condom broke an hour later. I took Plan B 3 days later and a clear blue text stated that I was 1-2 weeks pregnant.  Could I be pregnant even though I am still bleeding from the abortion?  I am also having cramps like I was on my period.  Could the test have read that I’m still having hormone changes and that’s way it read pregnant?

Good afternoon.


In the future use 2 condoms if you and he have sex.


There is an excellent chance that you are not pregnant.


Repeat the pregnancy test in 10 days.


Please do let me know what the text results are.
