11 Embarrassing Fertility Questions Answered
There are probably all sorts of crazy questions you have, which don't spring to your lips when you're sitting in front of your doc in a paper gown. Never fear though, because here are the answers to all the questions you've been dying to ask, but haven't.
11. My periods are usually very regular, but the last one was late. Could that mean I was pregnant and miscarried?
It is possible. Ten to 25 percent of all pregnancies end in miscarriage, including many pregnancies that women aren’t even aware of because they occur very early. “Early pregnancy losses are extremely common and not a cause for concern,” reassures Dr. McGovern. You would not experience more cramping with an early miscarriage, and the only way to know you that you were pregnant and miscarried would be with a blood test. Having a late period one or two times a year is in fact normal and often due to stress, travel, exercise, or illness.
