As long as you had a check-up after the abortion process, the abortion was successful. If you think you might be pregnant after the abortion procedure, it can be difficult to tell at first, as pregnancy tests can show up as positive for over a month after the abortion has taken place. One method is to purchase two home pregnancy tests. Take the first one a week after the day you believe you conceived, and the second one a week later. If the results of the second test show up darker than the first, you could be pregnant. If the second one is lighter, then it’s likely the test is being influenced by the hormones your body is producing.
