  • Bleeding in between menstrual cycles / periods or after menopause

  • Stomach feels constantly hard and stiff like a board

  • Increased vaginal discharge that is smelly

  • History of preterm labor

  • Fever

  • Abdominal pain

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Threatened Miscarriage

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Are you pregnant?

  • Do you feel like your water has broken?

  • Have you experienced vaginal bleeding or discharge outside of your periods or after menopause?

  • Is your stomach always hard and stiff like a board?

  • Has the vaginal discharge odor worsened recently?
