Hi Mara,Well technically speaking you will start to ovulate as soon as 2 weeks after an abortion. That means that you can get pregnant as soon as two weeks following a pregnancy if you dont use reliable contraception. You should not be sexually active for atleast two weeks following an abortion or atleast until your cervical os closes. However considering that you are still bleeding and continued to bleed through out the two week period that could indicate that you may still have some retained products of conception inside your uterus. A repeat USG should be done to rule this out and i would also suggest a visit your OB/GYN. But in regards ***** ***** question, you can get pregnant as soon as two weeks after an abortion as that is usually the time you start to ovulate. But you should have the bleeding evaluated to determine if there are any products of conception left inside your uterus.

If I do a home pregnancy test will it show the result ?
Thanks

Not this soon, IF you got pregnant it will take atleast a week for it to show up on a home pregnancy test. So that is why it is best to get a OB/GYN examination done.

We had sex Friday 1 am that's like 44 hours until now
If I took the morning after pill (Ella one) will it be affective now
Expert:  Dr. Muneeb Ali replied 7 months ago.
It MAY be effective but usually it is more effective within the first 24 hours. Secondly we still dont know if you are pregnant or not, considering your bleeding it is possible that you are not pregnant. There is always a chance but it would be better to have the RPOCs (retained products of conception) ruled out first. This would be more likely if you had a medical abortion, which means pills etc were used for the procedure (abortion).

How can I know if I'm pregnant or not from now ?
Expert:  Dr. Muneeb Ali replied 7 months ago.
At this point in time, this early on in the pregnancy, it is very difficult to tell whether you are pregnant or not, A blood test would be more accurate after a week as well. But this early on, you cant really tell whether you are pregnant or not.
