What Is A Threatened Miscarriage?

An ongoing pregnancy associated with bleeding is called a threatened miscarriage. The first symptoms are usually vaginal bleeding with or without mild period type pain. The bleeding can occur at any time after a missed period.

Threatened miscarriages are often noticed when going to the toilet as a smear of pink, brown or red loss on the toilet paper. The amount of bleeding may vary from just spotting to a gush with clots. As bleeding is very common and as long as it is not too heavy (heavier than a normal period bleed)-you can stay at home.

However, should you develop any sharp pains during a threatened miscarriage and you are worried, please do not hesitate to contact your healthcare provider/hospital emergency department.
