Can you have a miscarriage without bleeding?

On many occasions, bleeding is the first sign of a miscarriage. A miscarriage can, however, occur without bleeding or other symptoms that are likely to appear first. The loss of pregnancy is very common within the first weeks of pregnancy. The risk usually declines as the pregnancy progresses. Pregnancy symptoms shift over time and any change would not necessarily signal a pregnancy loss. Women should seek the help of a doctor if they believe that they have lost a pregnancy, with or without bleeding. Bleeding usually occurs when the uterus empties. In a few cases, the fetus might die but the womb does not empty. Also, the woman might not experience any bleeding. It can be termed as a missed miscarriage. It might also happen that the loss may go unnoticed for many days.
