Hundreds of thousands of women are affected by miscarriage each year in America. In the vast majority of cases, there is no way of preventing a miscarriage.

Having a miscarriage does not mean that you won't be able to get pregnant again, and most women go on to have a successful pregnancy.

What is Miscarriage?

The medical definition of miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before 24 weeks. Research has found that as many as one quarter of pregnancies finish in miscarriage, the most risky time being between six and eight weeks, dating from the last menstrual period.

Miscarriage symptoms

The most common symptom is vaginal bleeding, which can range from light spotting to heavier than a period. There may be blood clots, or other tissue that is not clearly identifiable. Sometimes a sac-like structure is seen.

Often there is cramping, with period-type pains. Some women find that the usual symptoms of pregnancy, such as breast tenderness, feeling sick and having to pass urine more frequently than usual, may stop unexpectedly.
