Miscarriage

I currently live in Japan. My pregnancy test showed positive so I went to the doctor. I started spotting right then, so she checked inside but couldn't see any fetus, so she said it might have been a late period. But then she checked my pee and it said positive again. She told me to stay home in bed and cancel work and appointments. I don't know what to make of this... I thought miscarriages this early couldn't be helped even if I laid in bed all day

You are correct studies have shown that bedrest does not decrease the risk of miscarriage.

And there are some risks with bedrest, including feeling depressed and anxious, blood clots, financial worries.  

You may opt to get a second opion or talk to your dr again about why they think you should be on bedrest  

So I was having the symptoms of pregnancy and didn't have my period for over a month but suddenly my period started but it's more than usual and there is ALOT of blood clots and really thick blood....what does this mean?

I would need more information. If there is a possibility that you could have been pregnant (if you had sexual intercourse without the use of condoms or birth control) the heavy bleeding could be a miscarriage. Heavy bleeding can also been referred to as dysfunctional uterine bleeding which has other causes. 

It would be a good idea to schedule an appointment at Corner health or with you health care provider. 

My period has been off for the last four months. Then one day I experienced abnormal bloody discharge. Could I have had a miscarriage?

It can be scary when your body does things it normally does not do, especially vaginal bleeding! It's difficult to pinpoint the cause of your irregular bleeding without knowing more specific information. It's important to schedule an appointment with a health care provider to help uncover the facts, especially if you are still having vaginal bleeding. Feel free to call us or schedule an appointment online for a day and time that works for you!
