A pregnancy that ends before 24 weeks is called a miscarriage.
About 1 in 100 women experience three or more miscarriages in a row* (recurrent miscarriage).
Symptoms of miscarriage include:
- Vaginal bleeding
- Abdominal cramping
- Fluid and tissue discharge from the vagina
- Decrease in morning sickness or breast tenderness
Some light bleeding is normal during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. You should contact your GP or maternity team if you have any bleeding during pregnancy.
