What Are the Symptoms of Miscarriage? By jodorsett on August 02, 2015

We also provide all of the most vital information our patients could need about reproduction, fertility, and pregnancy. The bottom line is this: the better you understand your own body and how it works, the more likely you are to make the best possible decisions regarding your fertility treatments.

You are also more likely to make the best possible decisions in response to potential emergency situations once you have successfully achieved pregnancy. It is for this reason that we discuss miscarriage symptoms with our patients during consultations at our Lubbock fertility clinic. The time to learn about miscarriage symptoms is not during pregnancy, and certainly not through experience, but before you conceive so that you can act quickly if you experience any of the symptoms. Miscarriage is always a sad and difficult event; however, when it occurs after successfully overcoming infertility, it is particularly tragic.

On the other hand, timely response to the possible symptoms of miscarriage can salvage a pregnancy. We invite you to read on and then contact our fertility clinic to set up your initial consultation today.

What are the signs of a possible miscarriage?

Unfortunately, miscarriage is fairly common, especially among women who struggle with infertility. However, it should be noted that the symptoms of miscarriage can also be caused by less serious conditions. While you should seek immediate medical care if you exhibit any of the following symptoms, do not panic. Your pregnancy may not be at risk.

Again, however, you should seek immediate medical assistance if you experience:

  • Vaginal spotting or bleeding
  • Severe lower back pain
  • Abdominal pain or cramping
  • Dull ache or pressure in your lower back
  • Fluid, tissue, or clots passing from your vagina
  • A decrease in the activity of the baby in the latter stages of pregnancy
  • An abrupt change in your own pregnancy symptoms, such as nausea or vomiting

A good rule of thumb is that it is better to be safe than to be sorry. You know your own body better than anyone else. If something feels off, don’t waste precious time attempting to diagnose yourself. Seek the help of a medical professional. It is far better to have the peace of mind of knowing that your baby is safe and healthy than to spend restless nights wondering whether you should have gone to the doctor. Even if you find out that you have had a miscarriage, it is better to know sooner rather than later.

Bear in mind that if you have multiple miscarriages, there may be an underlying problem that can be diagnosed by our fertility specialist, Dr. Janelle Dorsett.
