    Hi,

    I know this seems like a really stupid question but do you think this may have been a miscarraige?

    A while ago I had very, very bad cramps during my period. I have never had cramps at any point before, so this was very out of the ordinary. They were so bad that I had to go home early and painkillers didn't really have any effect. My period that month was also a few days late and was alot heavier than usual.

    Just prior to this my breasts were quite sore, even wearing a bra was uncomfortable sometimes and i often had a feeling of nausea. I did not vomit, retched and came close many times and had that feeling in the back of my throat alot of the time.

    I know it seems like such a stupid question but i've been thinking about it alot recently for several reasons. I wondered at the time but was afraid to go to the Doctors

    Thanks for any help

    Hi there,

    Yes it is possible you had an early miscarriage, a lot of pregnancies end in a miscarriage before the woman even knows theyre pregnant, I dont think the numbers are clear but it could be as high as 50%. Have you been using contraception? I wouldnt wory about it, unless your still bleeding

    Hope that helps!x

    There's no point. It's not like they could tell me know either way

    But a forum of students is more likely and qualified?

    No, but a forum of students aren't going to be able to help someone who is ill in the time they're taking to reply to this message. I don't want to waste a doctors time when there is nothing they can do about it and they could be spending that time helping someone else

    If it's important and it is a situation you are thinking about and/or makes you sad, that is something for your GP. No-one is going to die by going to the waiting room 10 minutes later than they would've if you hadn't seen your GP.

    WARNING GRAPHIC

    I have suffered from a miscarriage, i was 4 weeks pregnant. I had huge, bloody lumps falling out of me when i went to the toilet, it was like having a bowel movement 10 times in one go, then i had the feeling something was coming out every half hour and the same lumps were coming out for about 6 hours (every half hour).
    The pain was unreal, i couldn't help but cry from the physical pain.

    I am sorry for being so graphic but i wanted to share my experience
    Some times i get very heavy periods with clots when i am a few days late and with cramps, i think this is just your cycle changing.

    Are you sure you were only 4 weeks?

    I was 7 weeks when I miscarried and my passing was not as bad as yours.
    It was normal period cramping, with some sharp pains in between, that weren't that bad, and I only had a maximum of 4 blood clots come out (the size of a teaspoon and the width of the spoon part of the teaspoon)
