The most common symptom of impending miscarriage is vaginal bleeding, but not all pregnancies with bleeding end in miscarriage. The good news is around half of pregnancies with early vaginal bleeding result in the birth of a baby.
Other possible symptoms of impending miscarriage include lower abdominal cramping, and less commonly, a gush of clear fluid from the vagina with or without bleeding.
If you have any of these symptoms, you will want to see your doctor or midwife as soon as you can. Because bleeding carries the threat of miscarriage though, your doctor will want to watch you more carefully over the next few days. This can be followed with ultrasound or blood tests.
We are very sorry to tell you, but if you are having a miscarriage, there is not really anything anyone can do about it.
Bleeding at the beginning of a miscarriage can be light, continuing over several days. Mild lower abdominal or lower back aches might accompany the bleeding. As the miscarriage progresses, the bleeding will get heavier and the cramping can get more painful.
As your cervix dilates (opens), tissue can be passed. This tissue could be invaluable in determining the cause of the miscarriage. If your cervix is open and you’ve passed pregnancy tissue, the completeness of the miscarriage can be followed with blood tests. Sometimes the body does not totally expel all the products of conception. This is when a D&C may be performed to complete the process.
Miscarriages are sadly a common part of human reproduction. While we realise it’s of little comfort, if you’ve lost a baby through miscarriage, you are not alone. Approximately 15 to 20 per cent of all pregnancies end in miscarriage - often in the first trimester.
It’s important to remember that there is almost always nothing that could have been done to prevent a pregnancy being lost and nothing that can be done to hang on to a pregnancy that is destined to end in miscarriage.
We offer a counselling service for couples who have experienced pregnancy loss, to help them through this difficult time.
At Genea we have a number of Fertility Specialists who specialise in miscarriage and we also have a Miscarriage Management Program. If you’ve experienced multiple miscarriages then an initial appointment with a Fertility Specialist may be a good starting point.
