What are the symptoms of miscarriage?

The most common symptom of miscarriage is metrorrhagia, which consists of blood loss through the vagina. Metrorrhagia will not always end in miscarriage, but it will always be a risky situation for a pregnancy that must be considered.

At other times, miscarriage has no symptoms and is diagnosed during a routine ultrasound examination. In such cases, the embryo is found to have stopped its correct development and no active heartbeat is observed.

The most at-risk moment is during the first trimester of pregnancy, since it is during this stage that the majority of the embryo’s organs are formed. Once 12 weeks of pregnancy have been reached and its correct development is confirmed by ultrasound, the possibilities that a miscarriage will occur significantly decrease.
