I think I had a miscarriage last night TMI

Well, I'm 95% sure. I had been cramping for 2 weeks and finally got my "period" two days ago (I'm pre-menopausal so it didn't really phase me). Then last night horrible horrible cramps, went through 4 large tampons over the course of 2 hours, and had quite a few large clots.


I'm not really concerned about the miscarriage itself - it is my 3rd and I it hadn't even crossed my mind that I might be pregnant. I am concerned that I am almost 46 with three teens and my dh had a vasectomy 10 years ago!

Iím sorry for this.
Is it possible you have fibroids?

I used to get terrible cramping, large clots and heavy bleeding sometimes because of fibroids.

Hugs. And prayers.

I had a miscarriage last year at age 47. My doctor stressed the importance of self care mentally because it is a trauma. I ignored him at first and I had a tough time. Please, please care for yourself mind, body and spirit.

I certainly have no definitive answer about a miscarriage, but it is not uncommon to have the kind of period you describe as you approach menopause. They can become EXTREMELY heavy and clotty.

If you're concerned, the doctor can certainly check your husband. I think some type of regrowth would be quite rare.

It would likely be wise to make yourself a doctor's visit, just to make sure that there isn't another cause for the heavy bleeding, etc. And to make sure you don't need a D&C. And then a check for your DH might also be wise.

Be gentle with yourself. If it was an early miscarriage, it would be a shock to your body and your hormone levels could be out of whack for a while. And then there's the emotional part, which could blind-side you (or maybe not). Emotions are rather unpredictable.

With the other posters who suggested a dr visit. Maybe even a visit to the ER today, if you havenít already gone.

Lifting you in prayer.

I agree it may be for another reason and I'd get it checked out. Especially since your dh had a vasectomy- that makes it much more unlikely you were actually pregnant.

In any case, that sounds horrible

Your situation sounds like my periods in the few years before menopause. I had terrible heavy flow and lots of clots. I had to wear super tampons and a pad and it only lasted an hour or even less sometimes. I would check with your doctor, but it may just be an age thing.

I'd check with the doc . It happens to many of us entering menopause and it happened to me at work My health practice is to check with a doc once something shows up that I haven't experienced.

Thanks all. I will be seeing a doc (need to find one first, my OB left her practice a bit ago ). In the meantime, ugh! I appreciate the well wishes and advice!

I also had the heavy bleeding and huge clots as I approached menopause and was diagnosed with fibroids. Get checked out because I became dangerously anemic from it and would hate to see that happen to you.

Pregnancy Test

Terribly sorry if you did. It's beyond awful. I thought I had one and my friend told me to take a pregnancy test, since it's likely your hormones will still be there. It was positive. That's how I knew I had miscarried.
