Not likely, but...: Pregnancy can be stressful to some women, but more commonly has a calming affect on women, anxiety reducing, relaxation increasing.

Relax: Miscarriage can occur for many reasons related to the fetus. It is estimated that 30 percent of pregnancies end early on before they are known.

Had a natural miscarriage in oct and have had a normal cycle six weeks after and now I have on and off periods for five days very heavy  came 10 day e?

Cycle after miscarry: After a miscarriage, the usual advice is to wait 3 months of cycling before trying again to make sure your body gets back to normal. This not unusual but I recommend that you review this with your doctor to make sure that all is well.
