Miscarriage vs Clot
So I've noticed that many of you guys are not sure when it's a miscarriage vs when it's a clot so being a medical professional myself and working with women everyday all day I'm here to clarify.🤓
Clot: ● It's usually not painful but the pain can vary from mild to medium to severe (it's not the same for everyone)
●The size is generally small to medium though I have seen bigger once.
●The bleeding is normal menstrual bleeding amount (depending on your usual flow)
●The texture is also usually smooth and soft.
Miscarriage: ● The size is usually bigger than a clot depending on how your body passes the fetus
●Pain is usually quite intense but some women can experience mild pain and discomfort (depending on how far along you are, previous pregnancies, age etc.)
●Bleeding is quite heavy for most women as in like fill up a pad in less than a hour or so.
But all in all I would seriously advise that you go to the ER if you suspect a miscarriage because better safe than sorry. I hope it helps some of you a little bit.. and please talk to your OB/GYN about these things and get advice from them and not just this app.
