PT is negative, bleeding, headaches, cramps. How do I know if it is a miscarriage?

Ok my period was due Jan 19th.. I started spotting that was brown on the 17th.. It continued for 4 days. On the 21st i started to bleed very heavy with blood clots. The blood clots have gotten bigger and appear more often. they are about quarter sized now. I have stomach cramps im very tired ive been having headaches for a few days now and my back has been giving me alot of problems. Ive taken 3 pregnancy test and all say negative. What could be wrong?? I have a 9 month old son and his dad and i have wanted another baby. Could it be a miscarriage even though the tests were negative?

If you were getting regular cycles after child birth, then you may have to rule out an early abortion as you are bleeding abnormally. HPTs do not always give a positive result in early pregnancies as they are not so sensitive. I advice you to consult a gynecologist for a check up, blood tests and a sonogram and further management. Take care.

Hello, welcome to HCM, I am Dr Das

Look, it is just a heavy bleeding. Nothing else.

In case of miscarriage, the beta HCG level must be increased.

So, it is not a miscarriage. You should consult with your gynecologist for further management.
