 chicahottie - Sun Nov 06, 2005 11:05 am

i recently went to the doctor and took a pregnancy test and it came back positive, but i still have a little spot bleeding that is brown and clotty and when i went to the bathroom 2 pieces of tissue was in the toilet with little blood on them. i have a little bit of cramping. could this be a sign of a miscarriage? and if not is there anything i can do to induce a miscarriage? (there are no abortion clinics where i live)

User avatar It is possible that can be a sign of miscarriage.
Any bleeding during pregnancy should be reported to a doctor. If this is a miscarriage, then you need to see a doctor to make sure that it has passed completly.

There is no safe way to induce a miscarriage at home. This can only be done under a doctors supervision.

If you cannot find an abortion clinic in yoru area, then I suggest that you look for adoption services, if you do not want to keep the baby.

Good luck.
