Signs of Miscarriage

If you experience any or all of these symptoms, it is important to contact your health care provider to evaluate if you could be having a miscarriage:


  • Mild to severe back pain
  • White-pink mucus
  • True contractions (very painful happening every 5-20 minutes)
  • Brown or bright red bleeding with or without cramps (however, remember that 20-30% of all pregnancies can experience some bleeding in early pregnancy, with about 50% of those resulting in normal pregnancies)
  • Tissue with clot-like material passing from the vagina
  • Fever
  • Weakness
  • A positive pregnancy test, followed by a negative test
