I had a medical abortion at 6 weeks, 5... I had a medical

Customer Question

I had a medical abortion at 6 weeks, 5... I had a medical abortion at 6 weeks, 5 days on July 1st. Thats almost 5.5 weeks ago. I had severe hemorrhaging also which caused my Hemoglobin level to drop to 7.1 two weeks after. I have been on iron supplements
ever since that happened. I was rechecked last week and my hemoglobin came back up to 9-10. I am feeling much better. I had sex 10 days after the procedure, 19 days, 30 days, 31 days. I have had positive pregnancy tests. I have been having light bleeding almost
every time I use the restroom but I have had nothing in my panties, no need for maxi pads/tampons. It looks sort of like light pinkish red flakes that sink to the bottom of the toilet. What are the chances of me being pregnant again?

When did you have the pregnancy tests?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was told that they can show positive up to 6 weeks after. I took one 3 weeks after and it was positive, I took one yesterday and it was a faint positive.

While the test is positive, you can't be pregnant. After the test becomes negative, you should have sex to become pregnant.
