It unfortunately happens to many women, at some point in their life or another. Even women who are not taking the pill. Some women have factors in their body that can cause this frequently, potentially every single cycle.
There is really no way to accurately test for pregnancy when this starts happening, usually during your regular period. It might come a few days early, or start a few days late. It often feels and looks just like a regular, or slighty more intense period. You would not suspect miscarriage, until its too late. You often do not know at all. Which is the case for myself, save a couple of times that I remember my period being very uniquely different. This might have been when this occured, but, as false positives or negatives can easily occur early on (usually before 4-5 weeks along,) it was really too early to tell for sure.
**I do NOT, NOT, NOT take the pill, but my body has a condition which has the potential to cause these conditions naturally. It may never occur, it may occur every cycle, or just every few. I don’t know. But I know my body has these conditions and its heartbreaking to think about my only children (we are unable to have children of our own so far) dying before they are ever born. **
I take hope and consolation only in the fact that my babies, if they were lost due to this condition, are safetly in their heavenly home with a better family than we could ever hope or imagine being for them.
**This thread is really insensitive to those of us who have this problem, do not take birth control, and are already very upset to think what could (or does) happen to us (and our precious little ones) potentially every cycle. **
