The most familiar sign of a miscarriage is vaginal bleeding that might look like the usual menstrual blood. You may find it difficult to see the difference between miscarriage bleeding and menstrual bleeding as both may have blood clots.
Usually, a miscarriage has vaginal bleeding accompanied by abdominal cramps that are quite stronger than normal menstrual cramps. However, some women mentioned that they did not feel any cramping during their miscarriage.
Aside from vaginal bleeding, here are other miscarriage warning signs you need to watch out for:
- Persistent heavy vaginal bleeding
- Extreme pain in the lower abdomen
- Watery vaginal discharge that might be mixed with blood, clots, and pieces of tissue or meaty material.
- Intense pain in the back or extreme cramping
- The sudden absence of normal pregnancy symptoms like the tenderness of the breasts and nausea. Although these symptoms go away on their own as the pregnancy progresses, it is still best to get yourself checked, just in case.
If you encounter these signs, do not hesitate to ask for medical assistance or call your attending physician so you can still prevent miscarriage in early pregnancy.
