Not really. If you are bleeding, you should see a doctor. It could be nothing and it could be serious. Most likely with a miscarriage you will have pain in your stomach and the blood will be chunky, but not always. I'd see a doctor if I were bleeding any amount at all, with or without pain.

Could you have had a miscarriage if your period came three weeks ago and you have kept bleeding and spotting since then?

It is a possibility. I suggest you go to the doctor and get checked. If you HAVE had a miscarriage and you are still bleeding you may have a bit of the pregnancy still inside which could cause an infection or heavier bleeding. If you have NOT had a miscarriage there is some other problem which needs checking.


What is the difference between spotting as an early sign of pregnancy versus spotting as a side effect of birth control?

Could you have had a miscarriage if your pregnancy symptoms suddenly disappeared at six weeks and you had light brown spotting and light cramping?

I understand that disappearing pregnancy symptoms so early in the game can be daunting. This could be a sign of a miscarriage, yes but see your OB to make sure everything is alright via a ultra sound. Often times in pregnancy brown spotting ( old blood) are accompanied by some light cramping (round ligament pain) as the uterus grows and expands compensating for the growing fetus/embryo. See your OB right away if you are bleeding (red) or concerned. Brown spotting is not miscarriage spotting sweetheart. Miscarriage bleeding is usually very red blood, clot or tissue in the blood and very severe cramping/abdominal pains. Light cramping is most likely not a miscarriage. During early pregnancy a lot of women experience light brown bleeding or spotting or pinkisk or brown blood. This is old blood and is also known as early pregnancy bleeding. Its very normal. But if the blood becomes red or the cramping severe, then its advisable to contact your doctor immediately in the case of a possible miscarriage. See your doctor now for a pregnancy blood test.


If there is heavy bleeding during the first trimester and a couple of days later it stopped but there was still brownish spotting with abdominal cramping is there a chance for a miscarriage?

Any bleeding during pregnancy needs to be evaluated by a doctor. Heavy bleeding is a sign of miscarriage, but you have to see a doctor to be sure and to be checked for your health, as well.


Pain and bleeding in early pregnancy?

You should ask your doctor, but let me assure you pain and bleeding is not necessarily an indication of anything bad. Some women have light "periods" and spotting during pregnany. Heavy bleeding can indicate miscarriage.


How long does it take when you have a miscarriage to start bleeding?

It really does vary - sone women will have spotting for a few days, others have no warning at all. But spotting isn't necessarily a sign of imminent miscarriage, it's quite common especially in early pregnancy. If you're worried, see a doctor.
