how can you find out if you had an early miscarriage if the pregnancy test came back negative?

No way: Without a positive pregnancy test or ultrasound showing a pregnancy prior to the suspected miscarriage. There is no way to confirm whether it was a miscarriage or a late period.

In your heart: You may never know for certain. Many fertilized eggs never implant, or perish soon after. There is no reason that you've given us to think you cannot be a happy mother in the future. Best wishes.

You can't: If all the pregnancy tests done were negative, there is no way to know. If the pregnancy tests were done around the time of expected menstrual period and came back negative, there was likely never a pregnancy to begin with.
