Key Facts To Understand And Cope With A Miscarriage

Signs Of Miscarriage

There are many physical signs of a miscarriage. For example, if the woman has moderate to heavy bleeding from the vagina, she may be having a miscarriage. Keep in mind, however, that twenty to thirty percent of women with healthy pregnancies experience some spotting and bleeding early on. There may also be pain in the lower abdomen that feels similar to menstrual cramps. If the cramps are severe, the body may be contracting and miscarrying an early pregnancy. Lower back pain is also a sign to watch for as is the absence of typical pregnancy symptoms, such as tender breasts and nausea, especially if they were present before. Couples should seek the advice of a medical practitioner if they believe they are experiencing a miscarriage.
