This page will explain some of the pregnancy loss terms used by medical staff, and will link into the common birth methods that may be suggested to you, based on the kind of pregnancy loss you are experiencing (these terms are listed in near-chronological order of pregnancy loss). If this is overwhelming and you don’t remember what your doctor told you, you may want to start with this link: I’m having a miscarriage.
Chemical Pregnancy (miscarriage prior to ultrasound)
Missed Miscarriage (or “Silent Miscarriage”)
Recurrent Miscarriage (including fertility/parenting options)
Pregnancy Loss after Medically Assisted Conception (or grief after ART)
