A miscarriage early in pregnancy can resemble a large clot of blood. Sometimes a women does not even know she is miscarrying. Most miscarriages happen before the 7th week of pregnancy (which is about 5 weeks after conception) and only 3 weeks after a missed period. Which is why most women dont even realize anything is wrong. As the embryo grows the miscarriage will be much more noticable. Usually intense cramping followed by a day or two of bleeding, eventually expelling the embryo(s).(which might resemble a tampon in size and coloring) If experiencing any signs of a miscarriage it is important to be seen by a doctor. Sometimes a womens body does not expell all the embryo and sac and this could lead to an infection. A procedure called a D & C can be preformed to prevent this.

Besides stress what can go medicaly wrong that may cause a miscarriage?

So many things can cause or contribute to a miscarriage. Most of the time, miscarriages are caused by some type of fetal abnormality, where the fetus isn't developing properly. Many women, however, experience a miscarriage and then go on to have healthy pregnancies afterward. Miscarriages can also be caused by something going haywire in the mother's body, for example with the immune system or the uterus. Sometimes miscarriages even run in a family. Diet is also increasingly being looked at as a contributing factor to miscarriages. Most recently, caffeine consumption was linked to an increased risk for miscarriage as can certain over-the-counter herbal prepations. If you have had a miscarriage or if miscarriages run in your family, doctors can test to find out what may be the cause and take precautions for future pregnancies. Most of the time though miscarriages are an isolated event. Also, if you drink to much or something like smoke, it can cause miscarriages, underdevelopment, or deformation.
