Question can you miscarry while on birth control?

I was wondering can you have a miscariage while being on birth control ( the pill, patch, shot,ect.)

i'm the patch and i had a funny period it came 5 days late and it was heavy for 2 days straight and on the third day it was spotted and then it was gone. that is very unsual for me, can anyone help?

Yes it is possible but highly unlikely that this is what happened to you. The only way to know for sure is to see your doctor ASAP to find out what is going on.
One can have wacky periods even on birth control. Especially if you are still in the time frame that your body is adjusting to it..which is normally about three months. Also your body could just not be adjusting to this form of birth control.
Talk to your doctor to see what he/she suggests.

You can, but what you are describing does not sound like a miscarriage. Usually if you are miscarrying you will have a VERY heavy period that will be very clotting and very painful. Periods always change when you're on birth control so that can be why your period was funny.
