How soon after possible conception is it possible to have a miscarriage? Is it possible before your next period is due?

abortion can happen as early as before the next period, that is due to failur of implantation of the fertilized ovum in the uterus which occurs normaly one week after fertilization or one week before the next period.
other cause is trauma arround this time.

thank you
