Had natural miscarriage on june 14 everything came out on its own. I had unprotected sex on august 13. No period from time of miscarriage to august 13. On august 14 I had spotting and weird bleeding for three days which was nothing like a period and I had

Difficult to tell: Your question was cut off, but your spotting on 8/14 may have been a period. If you are trying for pregnancy, there's no harm in unprotected sex. If you want to wait a cycle or 2, I would use protection until you have a normal cycle, just so you know in your mind, that your body is 'back to normal.' after a miscarriage it can be up to 6-8 weeks typically for a normal cycle. ...Read more

I'm almost three weeks pregnant and just finished my period. The hospital said it could be a miscarriage. Is it possible that I'm still pregnant?

I'm almost three weeks pregnant and just finished my period. The hospital said it could be a miscarriage. Is it possible that I'm still pregnant?

Imagine: No. It is not possible. Imagine for a moment that a new fetus smaller than the tip of a pin trying to live and survive in blood in the uterus and then the blood sloughs off in a period. The fetus does not live through that. In most cases there is no fetus to begin with and it is a normal period. Viable pregnancy stops vaginal bleeding. ...Read more

9 days late now three days of light pink spotting barely there had fever one day gone now one + and 5-, miscarriage or cyst? Cramps, day11 heavy period

Can be normal: I would have to get more history to answer your question, and you age, menstural history etc., if you are saying you had 5 NEG pregnancy tests and you are still late and this is new for you, than you can wait, some times stress, medications etc can cause a person to have delayed period. However if your pregnancy test were postive than it is a different management ...Read more

Is a miscarriage like a period?

Pregnancy Bleeding: So the difference between the two is really the establishment of a pregnancy. If you're pregnant and you pass the pregnancy (embryo/fetus with the uterine lining) then that's a miscarriage. If you're not pregnant and you pass the uterine lining then it's a period. Either way, the passage of a significant amount of blood/tissue means the end of a cycle. If you're pregnant and bleeding, see an md. ...Read more

Falling hormones: Hello Brittany,
After a miscarriage, the hormones of pregnancy begin to fall. Depending on how far along the pregnancy was, it may take a little time or a longer time for your hormones to return to a non-pregnant state. Once this happens the body will start to cycle.

Rarely, a clot can be a sign of a fibroid or polyp in the uterus causing heavy or abnormal bleeding. Immediately after or during a miscarriage it's normal to pass clots, but 3 months after miscarriage, the clot is unlikely related to miscarriage. ...Read more
