Doctor

A:   Blunt trauma to the lower abdomen of a moderate to severity may lead to a miscarriage. Heavy bleeding, passage of blood clots, abdominal pain, lower back ache are other signs suggestive of a miscarriage.
It is advisable that you contact your local doctor or clinic or hospital and seek appropriate medical care. A physical examination, ultrasound evaluation and certain blood tests will be needed to assess the harm caused to you and your pregnancy.
In addition, I would recommend that you take all necessary precautions to avoid such an incident in the future.
