  • There is really no way to know without going to the DR and even then they may not be able to tell you for certain

  • It is very common for a woman to miscarry and never know. You can lose a fertilized egg before a pregnancy becomes established. Some studies have found that 30-50 percent of fertilized eggs are lost just before or even during the process of implantation. Usually to early for the woman to even think anything other than their period has arrived.

  • They can analyze tissues --if you keep some of the clots,etc that came out with the flow and bring it in a jar for the Lab ---they did that for me when I miscarried years ago.

  • It's very hard to tell, I had a chemical pregnancy in november of 08, and the only reason we found out was bc I got pregnant the next month and had our daughter end of august the following year....

  • It is hard to tell. Your doctor may not even be able to tell if it's an early mc.
