Had miscarriage, bad cramping, sweating, passed black stools. Normal?

Hi on Oct 12 I had heavy bleeding and cramping I was 8weeks 6 days pregnant. The Dr said the plasenta was detaching from my uterus and was having a miscarriage . he then did a D&A. Ive had bleeding on and off since and light cramping. Last night the pain was unbearable. i was cramping so bad it felt as if i was in labor. i started sweating a felt as if i was about to pass out from the pain. i went to use the bathroom and my stool was black. i dont know if this is normal after having a miscarriage. the cramping went away about an hour later. today i feel ok but im still worried something might be wrong.

Hi,
Passing stool black might be due to taking Iron medicines.
If you are not taking any iron tablet then you require evaluation of your case.
There might be some bleeding from your gastro-intestinal tract giving rise to black stool.
Consult your doctor and get examined.
Ok and take care.
