Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. It could be probably a missed abortion or complete abortion, not a still-birth. We say stillbirth after delivery if there is a dead-born foetus.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.
