How Do U Know When Your Having A Miscarriage
My dr confirmed I miscarried based a blood test, I have the paper work but I don't understand how he knows, it doesn't show my hcg levels?
See below: Ms. Kathryn 440: You have two related questions. It would be better to talk to your doctor for explanation. Blood HCG needs to be higher than 25 to diagnose pregnancy. It is not clear how a urine pregnancy test told you that you are 2-3 weeks pregnant. You may repeat the urine pregnancy test, be sure to follow the instructions for the test carefully. Better would be to see your doctor for a repeat blood test and if needed an ultrasound examination. ...Read more
A miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. (Pregnancy losses after the 20th week are called preterm deliveries.) A miscarriage may also be called a "spontaneous abortion." This refers to naturally occurring events, not medical ...Read more

It is hard to say if this is definitely needed as I have no info about the nature of the miscarriages such as blighted ovums ( no fetus in the sac) vs low progesterone. The shots certainly can help if you have low progesterone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If you get pregnant and still on the BC patch because u don't know. Will it hurt the baby or make u miscarriage?
Several issues: Was she truly pregnant? Did she have then an unusual or heavy period or pass some tissue. More cramping with the passage. Is she for sure not pregnant now? Clarity would come from OB exam and perhaps ultrasound. Miscarriage is not uncommon and can be variable by timing and symptoms. ...Read more
You may not know: You can know you have miscarried if you pass and can recognize pregnancy tissue, or if you have a positive pregnancy test that becomes negative after heavy bleeding. Simple heavy bleeding does not necessarily mean you have miscarried. Your physician can also sometimes tell by exam or sonogram. ...Read more
Varies: Sometimes it is obvious, many times it is not. Most women have some amount of bleeding during early pregnancy due to implantation and they may think they have (or are) miscarried. The best way to tell for sure is with an ultrasound and sometimes by following serial HCG levels in the blood. ...Read more
