Can you have a miscarriage without bleeding and cramping?

I went to the Dr last week to have my ultrasound and the Dr could not find the baby's heart beat or even find the baby on the ultrasound. I don't understand why if I have lost the baby why haven't I had the bleeding and cramping. I had a miscarriage 12 years ago so I definitely know what that feels like. Please advise me what has happen?


Dear Toni,

In most miscarriages, the baby has stopped growing, or never grew, long before the bleeding and cramping start. This may have been what happened in this case. The pregnancy has miscarried, but the pregnancy tissue has not yet been expelled.

Occasionally, the woman's body will not expel the pregnancy tissue. In that case, a D&C is needed to remove the pregnancy tissue.
