Bleeding is often the first sign of a miscarriage; it may be like slight spotting or quite severe, constant or irregular. The bleeding may come and go over several days. Some women can have slight bleeding in the first-trimester with a normal pregnancy. To confirm if you are having a miscarriage your health care provider may ask you questions such as how much you have bled, the number of pads that are soaked in a day, if there are only blood clots or whether you saw any tissue.
When bleeding occurs with pain and cramps it is a sign that it is most likely miscarriage. Pain and cramping is localised in the lower abdomen and may occur on only one side, both sides, or in the middle. The pain may radiate (go into) to your lower back, buttocks, and genitals.
