Could this be a miscarriage?
I am always regular 27 or 28 days cycle. I had
sex with my partner prior to ovulation till after
ovulation every other day. (ttc). I started
having sore heavy breasts, back aches, regular
headaches, nausea(not always), no apetite for
food, feeling pregnant and I have since been
taking folic acid. I have done 3 urine test that
came back negative, a blood test on the day
my period ought to start which was also
negative. 6 days passed my period expected
date -today. I started having serious cramps
(the type dat comes with a drug induced
abortion) and thick dark bleeding. I just
discovered I passed out a little tissue now and
upon cleaning up I discovered black dried little
dirts kept coming out. Im so worried I have lost
the pregnancy. I am presently thinking of
going for a scan but do not know the exact
type of scan to tell them I need at the lab.
Please help me urgently.

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

It is too early to go for scan. An ultrasound scan through vaginal route can detect a pregnancy by 5-6 weeks after last periods. Assuming, you are pregnant, please wait another week before going for scan. Meanwhile you can get a blood test for HCG estimation. If this is negative, you are unlikely to be pregnant. The change in periods could be due to stress.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.
