From my experience, a CP or early M/C has a lot of clotting and extremely painful cramps.  When I had mine, I was writhing on the bathroom floor in pain crying.  So, while the actual bleeding is different because of the clotting, the pain is what really stands out as the main difference to me.

No, I never had painful periods before.  This felt nothing like a period.  I think if you had a CP, you would probably know.

@hardtoconcentrate:    Not necessarily.  I’m sadly becoming somewhat of an expert on chemical pregnancies and each one has been different.

 

@MargaritaVille:  I think what you experienced could go either way.  I’ve now had 6 chemicals (I honestly hate that word) and each one has ended at roughly the same time, but have had some big differences to them.  My first one was nothing like a normal period – not because it was painful, but because I had a partial miscarriage that lasted 2 months until it was finally all over and done with.  My 2nd miscarriage was the only painful one – to the point of whimpering on the bed with nauseating cramps that felt like the beginning stages of labor.  The other 4 miscarriages have acted and felt like periods – very little clotting, and AF-like cramps.  With all of mine, I had positive tests, and then (if I continued testing) the tests would go negative or start to go negative.   It could be that you didn’t test early enough to see the positive, but it could be too that you just had an off AF that acted differently then typical.
