What Does An Early Miscarriage Feel Like?

What does an early miscarriage look like?

Many early miscarriages simply look like heavy menstrual periods, with maybe a few tiny blood clots in the discharge.

But sometimes in a later first-trimester miscarriage, there may not be recognizable tissue if the pregnancy began to deteriorate before the onset of the miscarriage bleeding.

How do I know if I had a miscarriage or my period?

Signs and Symptoms of a Miscarriage

Signs of a miscarriage can include spotting or vaginal bleeding similar to a menstrual period. The bleeding will often have more clots than a regular period, appearing as tiny lumps in the vaginal discharge. Heavier bleeding is another matter, particularly if accompanied by cramping.

What are the symptoms of miscarriage at 2 weeks?

The most common symptoms of early miscarriage are cramping and bleeding.

Other symptoms of miscarriage

  • cramping in your abdomen or lower back (This could start out like period cramps, but the pain typically worsens over time.)
  • nausea.
  • diarrhea.
  • passing fluids, larger-than-normal blood clots, or tissue from your vagina.

How do you tell if you are having an early miscarriage?

Some women do not experience any symptoms of miscarriage at all; however, possible miscarriage signs besides bleeding include:

  1. Mild to severe cramps.
  2. Pain in your back or abdomen.
  3. Loss of pregnancy symptoms, such as nausea or vomiting.
  4. White-pink mucus.
  5. Passing tissue or clot-like material.
