Hard to guess: If a woman had her NORMAL menstrual period 2 weeks ago, then she was not pregnant last week. If she was not pregnant, she could not miscarry. If she thinks she was actually pregnant, then doing a home urine pregnancy test the week after starting a "strange or abnormal period," or 3 weeks after having sex, should give a positive test result. If miscarried last week, result might be negative by now.
