In brief: Less than 1%
While it certainly possible to miscarry prior to confirmation of pregnancy, I do not receive many queries or meet many patients who have had that experience.
Without a positve pregnancy test, there is no way to know with certainty that there ever was a pregnancy. I occasionally see a patient who had a positive home test who is negative at the office, who then knew they were pg b4 they miscarried.

In brief: Not many
Today many women do home tests in these circumstances thes tests are so accurate that not to know is rare.
