This answer was rated:

Hi I had a missed miscarriage 4 weeks ago and had to have tablets to pass it. I have done several pregnancy tests and they are still showing a faint positive. My main problem is that the last few day I have had severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen and have had a brown discharge, and have today been urinating a lot (which causes pain in my stomach also)
Assistant: How long have you been in pain? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?
Customer: The last 2 days I have been in pain, and it is getting worse. No vomiting or nausea
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hi.welcome to just answer.I am caring doc.I can help you today.
These can be the signs of pelvic infection.
Did you follow up with your gynecologist after abortion..?
You may have retained some products of conception!

No I was just told to do a pregnancy test after 3 weeks ad 6 weeks. The pain has only started the last 2 days should call your doctor as early as is important to rule out pelvic infection at this time.some times some POC's are retained inside and may become infected.She may remove them and start antibiotics if you have infection!

Ok - is it normal to get an infection for that this amount of time after?

And is it normal to still be getting positive pregnancy tests?
No.the hcg should go down after misscarriage and by the time you are 2 weeks or more post miscarriage, your urine test should be negative. Positive test at this time means either you are pregnant again or you have retained some products of conception and your abortion was not complete!
I hope it helps!
