What does it mean to have a threatened miscarriage?

Any bleeding other than spotting during early pregnancy may represent a threatened miscarriage. (A miscarriage may also be referred to as a spontaneous abortion.) Vaginal bleeding is common in early pregnancy. The bleeding and pain associated with threatened miscarriage are usually mild.

Keeping this in consideration, can you still have a miscarriage if your cervix is closed?

If your cervix is closed and vaginal bleeding is the only symptom you're experiencing, you are likely experiencing a threatened miscarriage. This means that the pregnancy has not ended, despite vaginal bleeding, and it may or may not end in the future.

Is it painful having a miscarriage?

The first symptoms of miscarriage are usually spotting or bleeding, followed by cramps in your lower back or abdomen. Other signs include fluid or tissue passing from the vagina. However, heavy bleeding is associated with miscarriage; about 1 in 4 women who experience heavy bleeding will go on to miscarry.
