Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

The reason your periods have not become normal like before could be that your body is still recovering from abortion. However, if you really feel that you could be pregnant then please take a blood pregnancy test for confirmation.

Otherwise keep trying and wait for the next due date and see what happens. Hope this helps. Take care!
