Question: I would like to know if this is a possible miscarriage in it's really early stages of pregnancy or if it's just a blood clot? There is a tiny dark red dot in the middle. If it a miscarriage, the term would most likely have been about 2 weeks I think. My periods are extremely irregular. My last period was January 9 - January 13 and before that it was November 13 - November 21. So, since I had a period like about 2 weeks or so I'm not expecting to have a period right now. I am spotting but it's very light. I did take a home pregnancy test and it was negative. There pictures we're taken this morning at approximately 8:12 this morning central time. If this is a miscarriage, I had no knowledge of being pregnant. However, I did noticed that my nipples we're extremely tender. They were hurting so bad I had to take off my bra. I felt constipated and nauseous. A few nights ago I was trying to use the bathroom and I started throwing up something yellow. That same night I had really sharp stomach cramps. I felt like I was dying cause it hurt so bad. Normally when I get my period I don't usually have symptoms. And the blood clot don't ever look like this. So, is this something I should be worried about? Could this be a possible miscarriage or something?

Brief Answer:
It could be an early period.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting us about your healthcare.
I have gone through your history and image and understand your concern.

As you are having spotting today and your last menses was 9th January it could be an early menses (due to your irregular cycle) as you have not missed your period after your last menses, the chances of pregnancy are almost not there in your case, so chances of miscarriage are also very low.

These symptoms could be due to hormonal imbalance also.

But if you want to sure about it whether it is period bleeding or early miscarriage, you can go for blood beta HCG levels to rule out the possibility of pregnancy. In my opinion, it could be an early menses).

Hope you found this useful, feel free to ask for more information.

Good luck
Regards
