Yes you can.

Sometimes the baby dies but you do not 'miscarry' it.

Eventually you will probably pass it but sometimes you may need to be induced.

Unfortunately this is called a missed abortion.


Abortion. Medical term for termination of pregnancy by any means before the fetus (baby) is able to survive.

Threatened abortion. Bleeding and/or cramps with the fetus still alive and the cervix (neck of the wonb) still closed.

May go on to become

Inevitable abortion. (Miscarriage) Cervix opens and fetus is lost.

Incomplete abortion. Some of the products of conception (fetus and/or placenta) are retained.

Therapeutic abortion. Termination of pregnancy by a medical practitioner.

D and C. Dilation and Curettage. Operation whereby the gynecologist opens the cervix (dilation) and scrapes (curettes) the lining of the uteus (womb) to remove the products of conception. May follow an incomplete abortion.

The fetus is passed during the bleeding of a miscarriage. If it's in the first trimester, the fetus is smaller than a prune, so would look like a large clot.

Yes, you can pass tissue from a miscarriage while peeing. I know this from personal experience.

Is it possible to pass a fetus when you sit on the toilet to urinate when you didn't know you were pregnant and not start bleeding until the next day?

Yes, it is possible to be pregnant and have a miscarriage before learning you were pregnant. When you sat on the toilet to urinate, your body was in a position to easily pass the fetus, which may be why you passed it when you did. But if that is what happened to you, you need to see your doctor to find out why you didn't start your period until the next day, and to make sure the uterus shed the lining (afterbirth) as it should. When a miscarriage occurs, bleeding begins either just before passing the fetus, or immediately after.

After 3 or 4 weeks you have a miscarriage and you take the medication misoprostol to pass the remaining tissue but nothing happened what is the next step?

GO TO YOUR DOCTOR!!! At 3-4 weeks you usually pass everything with a miscarriage so there is nothing more to pass after taking misoprostol.

If you pass tissue that is not a blood clot and looks light pink and a little like a hair ball and have missed two periods could this be a pregnancy or miscarriage?

If you have not taken a pregnancy test it is not possible to know if you are having a miscarriage by what you have described. Call your Gynecologist, if you have the "hair-ball" ask him if you should bring it with you to your exam and what you should store it in in the mean time.

You have had a very heavy period with large clots and you have been passing some clots that look like raw steak Do you think that you have had a miscarriage?

During a miscarriage, the tissue is usually clots that are a grey or pinkish colour & sometimes you can see veins. However it is possible to pass large black clots during a miscarriage. It's possible you could have a miscarriage but it depends if you was having pregnancy symptoms. You may simply be having a unusually heavy period for you & passing large clots because of this. Antibiotics can sometimes cause the symptoms you mentioned but its unlikely. See your Doctor for a blood test asap.

Is it possible to have a miscarriage without bleeding?

Yes it is. I had a miscarriage this way. I went in for a standard appointment at 8 weeks and discovered by ultrasound that my baby had died at 5 weeks 4 days. I felt no cramps and had no bleeding. It is called a missed abortion or missed miscarriage. It is very common also. I was sent home and still did not pass the baby on my own even after 3 more weeks so I had to have a D&C (Dilation and Curettage) which is a procedure where they manually widen the cervix and remove the fetus from the uterus.

How are babies removed on the womb when miscarried?

If the miscarriage happens early enough in the pregnancy, the body will contract and the miscarriage will pass out of the mother, similar to her having a heavy period. If the fetus has begun to develop enouhg, then a procedure, similar to a c-section or abortion, will have to be done by a doctor to remove the dead cells without harming the mother.
