Am I having a miscarriage? I have been sexually active
Patient :Am I having a miscarriage? I have been sexually active and had unprotected sex a few weeks ago. I had my period about 6 days ago, bleeding heavy, along with severe cramps in the lower abdominal area. I thought it was normal considering my mother has had these severe cramps while on her cycle, so I thought nothing of it. Then they started to worsen, to where I was unable to work. I Took some advice from a few older girlfriends that have experienced something like this. They could only mention pregnancy. After I stopped bleeding I had a yellow grayish discharge come out which still continues to come out. I had researched for hours online about how it is possibly a miscarriage than a regular period. But how do I know whether it's just my normal period? I haven't bled anymore, I haven't passed any blood clots or sacs. So how do I know? What do I do?
