If you suspect a miscarriage can you still check and see if pregnant while bleeding with a pregnancy test.

Yes: Yes, you can check, but urine pregnancy test may not be quite reliable because blood may alter the test and the level of hormone sometimes may be too low to be detected. A serum pregnancy test, instead, is more reliable.
