What tests and exams are used to look for signs of miscarriage?

ANSWER

A blood test can show if your body is making pregnancy hormones. A complete blood count (CBC) may be done to find out how much blood you've lost, and several other tests may be done to see if you have an infection of some kind. Your doctor also may do a pelvic exam to look for changes to your cervix.
