Miscarriage symptoms can vary, depending on the type of miscarriage you may be having. Always contact your doctor straight away if you think you are experiencing miscarriage symptoms.
Wondering if you are experiencing miscarriage symptoms can be very distressing. Researching symptoms all over the internet but not finding the right answers. Reading articles or stories and finding scary information about what could be happening.
Even if it’s the last thing you feel like facing up to, it is best to contact your doctor.
In the case of a missed miscarriage, there may not be any feelings or symptoms.
Therefore it is natural to feel worried about the feelings and symptoms you are having in early pregnancy.
If you are worried, contact your doctor directly. That really is the best thing you can do. Get yourself checked. There is nothing worse than searching the internet and not knowing.
According to miscarriage statistics, around 1 in 4 women miscarry. Miscarriage statistics cannot be exact as some women are not aware that they have miscarried, in the case of chemical pregnancies and early miscarriages (between 0-6 weeks of being pregnant).
It is estimated that around 80% of miscarriages happen in the first trimester with the first six weeks being most common. After the first six weeks, the risk of miscarriage drops as the foetus develops itself.
The risk of miscarriage during the second trimester is between 2-3%.
Always contact your doctor straight away. Miscarriage symptoms may not mean that you will miscarry. Some women experience a threatened miscarriage and go on to have a full term pregnancy.
