Possible miscarriage?

So, I use a menstrual cup. I started my period today and it is an extremely HEAVY flow(heavier than normal, and I've had it since May so the adjustment period has pretty much passed. Oh, I have a Paragard. My boyfriend and I had sex during my fertile period without a condom, which we usually do, but he also may or may not have finished inside of me(we don't remember). Anyways, it was definitely a solid mass that was kind of feathery when broken up. I haven't had any unusual cramping, but this is just excessive for my first day. First days are usually relatively light, and then don't get heavy until the 3rd or 4th day.

I'm not freaking out, just curious. What is the likelihood that this is a miscarriage? Or is this just a strange, heavy, and sudden cycle? Do other ladies with Paragard experience similar periods?

And yes, I know... curiosity killed the cat. =]

Edit: Pretty sure I figured it out. I've changed my eating habits this month, and have been forgetting to take vitamins lately. I'm borderline anemic, and this is on-par with the bleeding I used to have when I was in the anemic category a few years ago... all the same, with the bleeding and dizzyness and whatnot. Thanks for your thoughts and ides though!

Oh, and just as a side note... I've had my Paragard for 5 months. The periods have been heavier than normal, as in a cup-change every 3-4 hours, but not on day 1.
