Would you expect a v.early m/c to last the same as a period?

I've just started bleeding today, and OMG even by my standards it's awful. Thinking back I've had symptoms, really big, tender boobs, feeling sick. Also, never get any cramps/pain, and lots today.

Anyway, I'm 10 days late (and usually it's clockwork to the hour) and had just not even noticed hmm - v. difficult week/life at the moment. So, just worked out this morning what this might be.

I'm not going to test, really don't want to know either way, but if it is a m/c would I expect it to take any longer than a period when it's only 5-6 weeks LMP?

Thanks for any advice.

Please go to your GP, if nothing but to get some proper pain relief. I recently MCd at 5 +4 and it was horrendous. My GP was concerned about the amount of pain I was in and sent me to the hospital just in case of an ectopic (which it wasn't thankfully) but the pain was awful. My period normally lasts a couple of days and is fairly easy, the MC lasted over a week and is the most painful thing I've ever dealt with (childbirth aside)

Please go and see your GP, if for no other reason than to get proper pain relief (you may well need it).

So sorry you're going through this

Thanks for that; I would feel silly going to see the doctor when I'm not even positive I'm pg... but maybe will see how I get on in the next day or so. Better for some drugs, will get to a hot water bottle too.

thanks again.

Dont feel silly, you would be more than justified

Def go if the pain gets worse or you get any stabby pains.
