This might sound weird and i dont know if its a possibility but If a girl didnt know she was pregnant and had a miscarriage would there be any signs of her knowing, like something unusual with her period. I am on the pill but i am not suppose to get it yet and i got it and have killer cramps but it is not like a normal period and i dont mean spotting or anything its kind of sick so i dont feel like saying it unless i need to. I dont know if its a stupid question in my case but its in the back of my mind so i mine as well ask

Really, there isn't a lot different about a very early miscarriage and a "normal" period (just remember, when you're on the pill, or any other hormonal birth control, you have what is called a withdrawl bleed, which is similar to but not an actual period); that's why there's a fairly high statistic representing the number of unknown pregnancies that do not come to term, because the body within the first couple or few weeks simply doesn't keep it and so the embryo is just flushed out with the normal stuff.

If you are really concerned about what you're experiencing, it may be a good idea to check with a gynecologist.

I just wanted to say that it's very easy to confuse blood clots with miscarriedge. The first time I ever started taking birth control pills, I had some side effects during my period: it came like 3 weeks later than it was supposed to, with horrible pain and huge(half-palm sized blood clots). Well I thought I was having a miscariedge and went to the hospital. And they told me I was simply experiencing birth control side effects. (they gave me a pregnancy test, cuz if I was pregnant, then the hcg hormone or whatever its called would still be in my system after a miscariedge)
Oh, and they told me to see my doctor about switching to a different birth control option. I went with the patch.

i am sure i am jsut being paranoid and it is way more of a possibility to be blood clots. It like jelly kind of but not all of it and nothing palm sized. I have been on the pill for 3-4 months so i am sure its just like a break through period. If it happens more i will have to go get it checked.
