Can you have a miscarriage and not know it?

Can you have a miscarriage and not know it?

Yes: You may have a miscarriage without ever knowing it. You may have a heavier than normal period or some cramping followed by bleeding.

Can you have a miscarriage while on your cycle?

Can you have a miscarriage while on your cycle?

Sort of: A blood test can detect the HCG hormone 7-10 days after a woman ovulates, and before she has even missed a period. She can then go on to have a normal period. We often call this a 'biochemical pregnancy' because the test is positive, but it was too early to see anything on sonogram. While this technically could be a miscarriage, it probably happens more often than we know. ...Read more
