Period type miscarriage a month nd 2 weeks trying to get pregnant no period until spotting with clear bloody discharge could this be pregnancy?

Period type miscarriage a month nd 2 weeks trying to get pregnant no period until spotting with clear bloody discharge could this be pregnancy?

GYN MD visit: Head to your favorite GYN MD and make sure that you do not have an infection that hasn't been determined as of yet. The products of conception should also have been tested. Often an antibiotic is given prophylactically for such a purpose if all STD testing and other parameters are negative. Keep in mind that the number one cause of early miscarriage are genetic incompatibilities. ...Read more
