A miscarriage is the loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. The medical term for a miscarriage is spontaneous abortion but this term (abortion) is not the same as an induced abortion. You will experience bleeding which progresses from light to heavy, severe cramps, pain, and even back pain. Many women feel great loss even those who choose induced abortion. You may feel very depressed which is often seen in women after a child's birth and that is due to the rapid shift in hormones.
