Hello,

in the case you describe, a new pregnancy cannot be excluded. I would recommend a hcg-blood-test by your OB/GYN, this will give you certainty.

Kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

Ok... After i had the abortion done all my symptoms went away.. Now the bottom of my stomach is hard again... Feeling a bit more tired then usual... Would you think these are signs from a new pregnancy? Also when i took that pregnancy test that showed how many weeks why would it say im 2 to 3 weeks along when it has been a little over 5 weeks from having it done... Thank you

Some tests refer to the first day of last period. These symptoms can indeed be due to a new pregnancy.

Sorry, just now I´m not able to communicate by phone.

Blood test is really the only way for you to be sure.

Ok... Could i go to an urgent care center today to get one? I know its only bee. 13 days or so since from the first time having unprotected sex
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 9 months ago.

13 days after intercourse blood test is reliable. You could also visit your OB/GYN tomorrow for it.
