How do you know if you passed the SAC during a miscarriage?

Other pregnancy tissue can look like a spongy blood clot. It may be a different colour from the other clots you have passed.
How long does it take to miscarry an empty sac?
pregnancy or “empty sac” is when the pregnancy stopped growing before the fetus developed.
