Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
After undergoing abortion it may take few weeks to few months for recurrence of menstrual periods.
Gonadal hormonal imbalance, general conditions like anemia, thyroid disorders etc can also influence this period.
As your urine pregnancy test kit gave negative result, the possibility of pregnancy is less.
Now better to go for ultrasound once, which can help in finding out the possible cause of your problem by assessing endometrial thickness and appearance of ovaries.
Then you can plan further management according to the findings with your doctor's advice.

Take care
