Did I miscarry?

I got my period on the 3 or 4th I usually get them on the 17. It started out as a dark brown clot and eventually progressed into full on blood. Its been on and off light and medium heavy. I dont understand whats going on and its kinda worrying me. I thought today was my last day cause i seen nothing. I ended up pulling out a piece of toilet paper that I guess was blocking it from coming out and had a different than blood. But anyways I freaked out and I stuck my finger up there to see if anything was out of the norm. As I did that I felt something round and tiny. And its really freaking me out because Im scared it is a baby? I have never had a miscarriage or even birthed a child. So idk what to expect. I want to get a bit of insight before I go to doctors so I have an idea of what to tell them. Please help and let me know what this means.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for advice before you schedule an appointment with a gynecologist.

I do think you need to call and schedule that appointment today.

If you have had unprotected intercourse since your last period, the early onset of bleeding could be a miscarriage. I am concerned about the round, tiny mass that you felt.
A pelvic exam will determine what this is.

Please try to stay calm. A visit with a physician will give you answers, and hopefully peace of mind. Keep us updated once you have been seen.
