I terminated my pregnancy on the 6th of June. The nurse said I must wait for 14 days in order for my cycle to get back to normal.
This morning I took a pregnancy test. One line was clear and the other one was lightly visible. The pamphlet says if the other line appears lightly visible, it’s positive.
Now I am worried and I don’t know what to think. Am I really pregnant after an abortion? The day before termination I had unprotected sex. Could that be the reason why I am pregnant again? Can you get pregnant twice while still pregnant if ejaculation took place when you are pregnant?
This is a question that for practical purposes might be answered as follows: sex the night before abortion does NOT put you at risk for a second pregnancy. Pregnancy is quite unlikely from unprotected sex the day before your abortion.
Pregnancy tests remain positive for a short while after an abortion. Use contraception for sure if you have sex.
