Pregnancy and miscarriage

Patient: Miscarried 3 weeks ago, did not see a doctor but no period yet but cramps on lower abdomen. is this normal

 

 

Symptoms: Cramps on the lower abdomen

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.It is very important to see a doctor first and rule out the miscarriage. It is importa nt to make sure it was a uterine pregnancy followed by miscarriage and not an ectopic as they can cause severe lower abdominal cramps, documenting immediate attention.You can anticipate your cycle in a month’s time if it is a natural miscarriage and has not left any retained products of conception.Hope this helped.Regards
