Yes, especially if you were very early along. An early miscarriage (up to 7 or 8 weeks) would come on and just feel and look like a period with cramps etc.

Somewhere around 25 - 30% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. And of those 40% are when the women did not even realize they were pregnant.

If you have had a miscarriage should you tell the one that got you pregnant if he didnt even know you were pregnant in the first place?

I posted this question. And it sounds really bad. But I didnt even know I was pregnant. I had thoughts and knew there were possibilities and I was having symptoms but wasnt for sure. Then my friend (She had just had a baby) said that what I was going thru was prolly a miscarriage. I didnt even know if I was for sure or not. I wasnt going to tell the guy that got me in this that I was if I wasnt. It would have started too much drama. If I was then I was going to for sure tell him. But anyways ...... please help me with this question!! This is really a question only you can answer. My feeling is that if you are not even sure it was a miscarriage not to tell anyone. You have a good friend who you can talk to so you don't have to keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself. If you are convinced it WAS a miscarriage and he is a steady boyfriend you probably need to tell him as your worry about getting pregnant (again) is going to change your attitude to him. If he is not a steady boyfriend I would say don't tell him, more from what he might say to HIS friends and how far the 'story' might go than for any other reason. Hope this helps

You could have had a miscarriage, but even though you've suffered heavy bleeding with clots you could still be pregnant.

You lied and said you started your period bt really you didnt and you got the depo shot you think im pregnant will it cause a miscarriage?

you need to see a doctor. its bad to take birth control when you're pregnant, it could harm the unborn baby or cause a miscarriage. please see a doctor even if you don't want the baby, it's important for you to be healthy too. if you have a miscarriage but it stays inside you it can be very bad, cause infections and make you seriously ill. you can still take a pregnancy test, the depo won't change the test result. I've been in the same situation, but lucky i was not pregnant. still went to the doctor to make sure.

It could have been a couple of things. She could of had a false pregnancy. Rabbits will sometimes think they are pregnant. My rabbit did this once even though she has never been around a male. She could of absorbed her litter. When rabbits are under stress they will absorb their litters in to their body. Did you breed the rabbit on purpose? If you are then you should stop.

If you had a VERY heavy period and are now lightly spotting again and 4 months ago you had a 2nd trimester miscarriage is it possible to be pregnant even though you just had your period?

They say that you can have a very heavy period and that is a sign of early miscarriage. Most woman have a miscarriage early in the first 3 weeks and didnt even know they were pregnant. They just thank that they are having a very heavy period and then they experience spotting also. More then 50% of pregnancy dont make it past the first 4 weeks and most woman dont ever know that they were expecting. From everything that I have read its not common to bleed heavy if your pregnant. I would check with your doctor. If you feel that you may be pregnant he-she can do a blood test.

Prolonged Bleeding doesnt always mean you pregnant, stress can change patterens as well as having a unnormal period.
