Am I Pregnant Answer A9767
Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Since you had started with the birth control pills after your abortion and then had unprotected intercourse, so chances of pregnancy because of birth control failure are very less. In case of pregnancy loss, the value of HCG are raised for some days after periods and will return to a non-pregnant range(<5 mIU /L) about 4 - 6 weeks after a pregnancy loss. You can confirm your pregnancy status by getting an ultrasound uterus instead. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
