Do you essentially get your period when you miscarry?

In brief: Yes

A miscarriage is like a period but typically is heavier and has more cramps than usual.
The bleeding can be a lot heavier than usual. Most women with a early miscarriage can miscarry on their own ok, but if there is very heavy bleeding that doesn't improve or severe pain or fever, she should contact her doctor.
