Just wondering if any one has has a miscarriage with out bleeding, I'm 36 and
I'm 5 weeks prego and this is my 4th baby I had a miscarriage
2 months ago at 6 weeks with bleeding, now I'm cramping have no bleeding
Never had cramping with my other pregnacys, and I have been told its possible
to miscarry and not have bleeding, so I'm a bit worried and confused
Has any one had a miscarriage with out bleeding
I was diagnosed as having had a missed miscarriage. But when it all came out, there was bleeding. I'm confused on how it's possible to miscarry without bleeding.
From what I could remember from your other posts though, you did have medical help to expel everything, right?
See, a 'missed miscarriage' basically means that your body just doesn't register that it's supposed to miscarry on its' own and so in turn, it still thinks it's pregnant and therefore there is no bleeding. Hence the name 'missed' miscarriage. Your body totally missed the signals of miscarriage. Anyway, with a 'missed miscarriage' you have to have some sort of medical intervention, whether it be pills to start the miscarriage (which I believe you, JaeSung, took, right?) or even a D&C if the 'pregnancy' has gone too long, which was what happened in my case actually. Hope that helps clear that up for you!!! In a natural miscarriage, your body miscarries and expels everything on it's own without the need for medical assistance. This is why a lot of women actually miscarry very early on and don't even know they were pregnant. They just assume it's their period.
I'm not sure because I've had a miscarriage at 11 weeks where I felt like I was in labor and there was major bleeding and passing of things. I also had a chemical pregnancy at 5 weeks where I got a positive pregnancy test and four days later I started bleeding not unlike a regular period and went through a whole period before stopping.

You don't necessarily have to have medical intervention. There are three options. Natural. Using pills. And D&C.
And no, I did not use the pills. I asked for them, so I'd have them on hand in case I decided waiting for it to happen naturally was taking too long.
First of all, I am sorry I got confused about whether you took pills or miscarried naturally.
Also, I think there is a bit of a confusion about 'missed' miscarriages and 'natural' miscarriages. In my case, I had a 'missed' miscarriage where essentially the baby is not alive/growing anymore and the body still believes it is pregnant. Without an ultrasound finding out that the baby is no longer alive, the woman continues to believe she is pregnant and could continue to believe that for months. Essentially the body will not miscarry on it's own, unless with some help. In my case he said I had two options...pills or a D&C, but due to my bloodwork he said that the pregnancy had continued for far too long to be able to use pills (usually used before 9 weeks pregnant and I was already 12 weeks pregnant at the time of finding out) and therefore I had to have a D&C. Probably, if you were diagnosed with a 'missed' miscarriage, it was very early on and your body did figure out what to do naturally, but in most cases a 'missed' miscarriage is found much later and needs external help to clean everything out.
