My period was late, yesterday I started my period, last

Customer Question

My period was late, yesterday I started my period, last night I had severe cramps (like labour) I felt a 'pop' sensation in my stomach, then a very heavy flow with clots, but ghetto pain stopped. Could this be a miscarriage (I don't know if I was pregnant) and if so, what do I need to look out for in case of any problems?

You can determine if you are having a miscarriage by doing a home pregnancy test. If you are having a miscarriage,it will be positive. This early, you would go on to have a heavy period. As long as you are not bleeding through more than a large pad every two hours, you are fine.

I was last night, but the bleeding has slowed down today although I still have lower back pain. Thank you for your help
