Did I have a miscarriage or is it a muscle knot? HELP!

Last night I started getting what I thought was menstrual cramps, so I expected it was my period. I put on a panty liner and went to bed. I woke up and I got my period that night. I went to work.

After awhile at work I started getting horrific pains every 15-20 minutes. I had to stop what I was doing and breath through my mouth until they were gone. Then they started coming every 5-10 minutes. I went over the road and bought some pain relievers, and that helped a little. I had to take out my tampon earlier and use a pad because of the pain.

While I was sitting at my desk I felt something come out, and I thought it was just heavy bleeding. I went to the bathroom to check and there was a white/pinkish tissue hallow sack about the size of a golfball. At one end there was a hole, and at the top of the sack was a dark long red lump inside. I started panicking and took pictures of it unsure if I should show pictures to my doctor or just take the whole thing with me to the doctors. I ended up doing both, and my doctor was unsure of what it was. Since I use birth control, he said that it could either be a fetus or a muscle knot that fell out. But after it fell out I stopped bleeding, and only get a couple spots... could this be a miscarriage?

I have had one current sex partner, which has lasted for about 3 months. The last time we had sex was about 3 weeks ago. I should also mention that I have usually been taking birth control everyday as I should, but there has been a couple days I forgot to take them so I ended up taking 2 at once. Also, the first time we had sex, I wasn't on birth control, and we didn't use any type of protection. I then got started on birth control again when I got my period a week after (very light bleeding that only lasted a couple days.) I took a pregnancy test 3 weeks after to be 100% sure and it was negative.

Could this be a miscarriage? Please help!

Did the doctor send it off to pathology?

I can only tell you that I had the exact same symptoms you describe - horrific pain, the falling out feeling, etc... when I had an actual miscarriage. Like you, I wasn't sure either, but I was pregnant so testing concluded it was a miscarriage.
