Something very similar happened to me about two years ago. Late period, weird bleeding patterns, long bleeding and really clotty. I also had tissue come out in the clots. I had a lot of regular pregnancy symptoms such as headaches, backaches, nausea. I went to the Gyn and he said it was most probably an irregular period but he was still confused as to some of the symptoms I was having. I believe I had a miscarriage after seeing the tissue.

Sounds like to me you did have one but if everything is ok now then I wouldn't worry about it. Just be careful with the hubby next time if you're not looking to conceive.

Well, that's really frustrating. Your doc is right though on the blood test. It would have shown up positive, just with very low levels of HCG. Takes awhile for that hormone to leave your body. Another thing that pops into my mind is an ovarian cyst. Those, since they are on your ovaries, can really mess with your cycle. If it persists, you may want to go in for an ultrasound and see if they can tell what's going on.

Hope you feel better!

I assure you, this wasn't a miscarriage.
