If a woman is rh negative, could that cause a miscarriage at 5 weeks?

Unlikely: Rh status is not likely be the cause of a miscarriage. However the woman should receive Rhogam after the miscarriage to prevent sensitization. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost spontaneously, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo.
