Threatened Miscarriage (cont.)

Threatened Miscarriage Symptoms

Symptoms of a spontaneous miscarriage include vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain.

  • Bleeding may be only slight spotting, or it can be heavy. The health care professional
    will ask how heavy the bleeding is, and how many pads are being soaked through per hour. The health care professional will also ask about blood clots or tissue passed.
  • Pain and cramping are in the lower abdomen. They may be on one side, both sides, or in the middle. The pain can go into the lower back, buttocks, and genitals.
