Very early miscarriage

Sometimes a woman will have a loss without ever knowing she was pregnant. A very early miscarriage usually occurs within days of implantation, sometimes up to 1 week after the period was due. A woman will more than likely put this down to a late period, especially if there were no early symptoms of pregnancy or a test was not done.

This miscarriage is also medically known as a chemical miscarriage as the pregnancy is usually only detected through a blood test or may have shown positive ever so faintly on a pregnancy stick.

Because so many mother's didn't know that they were pregnant at the time of their loss, the statistics for miscarriage may be alot higher than realised.
