Post subject: Could I have miscarried?-confused and sad
Early this morning I woke up with an excruciating pain in my abdomen, It was so bad I felt like I needed to puke. I ran to the bathroom and lay down on the floor hoping to get some pain relief. I felt a pressure in my bum, like I needed to go for a poo, but with no success.
I was a little disoriented and I didn't realise the severe cramps could be period related, as I never get pain as bad as this. When I tried to pee i noticed I already was bleeding, which was odd as I normally begin my period with a light browish discharge before it gets heavy. It was also a very pale clear pinky-red colour which is unusual. I was about a week late and hadn't thought much of it. It also kinda smells a bit different to my normal period blood smell. I took two nurofen tablets and the pain subsided.
An hour or so later when i went to change my pad, I noticed when I wiped there was some thick tissue, and where there was no blood covering it, some of the tissue was a pale cream.
I've had a dull pain in my back for the past week and my breasts have been quite tender. Could I have miscarried? I'm 18 and not looking to conceive but I'm still sad at the thought of the potential loss. Can't stop thinking about it.
