I thought I was miscarrying because I kept bleeding after sex, and only after sex (I didn't even know I was pregnant yet). After a few days, though, the bleeding started happening continuously for two weeks and they thought i was having a miscarriage, but it turns out the pregnancy was ectopic. Unfortunately, miscarriage is the most common type of pregnancy loss according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Studies reveal that anywhere from % of clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage, and most miscarriages occur during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. Surviving a pregnancy loss can be very difficult. After a miscarriage you may experience a roller coaster of emotions, as well as physical symptoms, as your body recovers. It takes a few weeks to a month or more to recover physically from a miscarriage. Your recovery will depend on how far along you.
