Brief Answer: Dont worry Detailed Answer: Hi I understand your anxiety. But you have already reached 20 weeks which is a good sign and chances of miscarriage after this are very less. Hence I suggest you relax and stop thinking of miscarriage. Peroxide reacts with most surfaces that have dirt. Your undergarment contains mucous discharge and not blood. Hence it reacted. Its a crude way to decide anything. Dont decide anything based on this. Please get anomaly scan at 20 weeks which is routinely advisable. Let me know if you have any more questions.
