Medical Abortion, not sure if pregnant again

User Profile
I had a medical abortion about 5 weeks ago. I did have unprotected sex with my husband 4 weeks ago I was not thinking because I knew that he would not ejaculate at all.
When I went to my follow up I asked for plan B, and the doctor said I still have a few blood clots. I know I passed the placenta and I don't feel pregnant.
I still haven't really passed much blood clots but I have been bleeding constantly and heavily ever since, so I had a few concerns.

1) I've been feeling thirsty for the past two weeks, I'm wondering if its from all the blood I lost and still having bloodclots. The thirst is Nothing compared to the one I had when I was pregnant but this made me very concerned. Although I have NO breast tenderness and they appear to have shrunk a little, and no cramps since the day of the abortion, no nausea, and only been frequently urinating today because i drank lots of water for tests.

2) I took an Early Result pregnancy test last week, the line that indicates pregnancy was thin, not bold like it was when I took the test when I was pregnant. I took two today and there is nothing there. If I hold it to the light i might see very faint barely visible blue lines but both results definitely look like a negative.

All in all, I am not sure what to make of this. Are my hcg levels dropping? I don't want to go back to the clinic because it triggers something in me that makes me want to cry. I don't want to be pregnant again just to have it terminated again. I feel like an idiot. Please give me educated responses.

Sounds like a seris of bad decsions on your part really. The thirst could be from a number of things ... not really an conclusive sign of pregnancy. Your Hcg levels should have dropped low enough by now to be undetectable on a standard pregnancy test so if you are still getting a postive result I would suggest you visit your OB. Or simple wait for your next cycle... have you missed it already?
