A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Yes, it could be a miscarriage although you were on contraception, no contraception can be hundred percent effective.
Also, consult a gynecologist to confirm the same and in case of a spontaneous miscarriage, you will need to undergo a check scan to see if the abortion is complete, else you might experience continuous heave bleeding and can go into infection.

Hope this was helpful.
Regards
