User avatar Nothing is impossible, but it is unlikely you had a miscarriage; miscarriages have a significant amount of bleeding, and havy clotting along with very severe cramping. It can last several days to a week or more. It could possibly be pregnancy, though, have you taken a test?

Are you on the pill, or have you come off it recently? Any hormonal birth control at all?

Are your periods other than this, normal and regular?
