Early miscarriage

Early miscarriage is when a woman loses her pregnancy in the first three months and is usually accompanied by vaginal bleeding and pain.

Bleeding and pain in early pregnancy:
Many early miscarriages occur before a woman has missed her first period or before her pregnancy has been confirmed. Once you have had a positive pregnancy test, there is around a one in five (20%) risk of having a miscarriage in the first three months. Most miscarriages occur as a ‘one-off’ (sporadic) event and there is a good chance of having a successful pregnancy in the future.
