How does a doctor know you had a miscarriage if you did not even know you were pregnant?

Because of the levels of a certain hormone in your body and the way the lining of your uterus is. There are lots of ways for a doctor to know if you had a miscarriage.

He can give you a blood test right afterward that will test your levels of HCG in the blood. If it is more than two, then you were pregnant.

No there is no way to see that unless they see you have scarring to something if you needed a D&C after. Then they might ask but they can't tell if that is a miscarriage.

When I had a miscarriage I had really horrible cramps and I started to bleed even though I was not on my period. I already knew that I was pregnant and when i went into my doctor to take another test she told me I had lost the baby. Hope this help

I would not think so as long as the miscarriage was complete. Let your doctor know as soon as you find out you are pregnant again and let them know your history of miscarriage. THey can monitor you more closely.

Certain prescription and/or over­the­counter drugs are associated with fetal abnormalities and miscarriages. Consult your doctor before taking any medication when you are pregnant or trying to conceive. Some drugs can damage the fetus and cause miscarriage before you even know you are pregnant.
