I have a few questions.
I too have this and when I do become pregnant I need anticoagulant therapy. My question is how/why was it discovered for you?
The reason I ask is that I read that it can cause infertility. I want to know what you did to help get pregnant.

I found out I have this after my second m/c. It hasn't caused any problems to get pregnant and now I'm wondering if it is the culprit because here I am 8 months later and still not pregnant.

anyways TIA

I have four total disorders..

Anti-Cardiolipin Antibodies
MTHFR
Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor
Factor V Leiden

They were discovered after my last miscarriage. I was told to take a baby aspirin.

Now that I am pregnant, I am giving myself Lovenox injections daily. This will continue throughout my pregnancy.

From what I understand, these cause you to be more likely to develop blood clots. The doctor told me yesterday at my 1st appt. that without the injections, I had a 25% chance of going full-term. With the injections, he said I have a 90% chance of going full-term.

okay, so you didn't have a problem to get pregnant? We're trying for #2 and it's been 8 months now, I didn't have a problem gettting pregnant before. I read that the disorder affects in the pre-embryonic stages, so last cycle I started with a baby aspirin also.

I took Lovenox during my pregnancy with my daughter - and let me tell you those shots burn like HE!!, but she's so worth every penny!! I was nervous the entire time, probably just like you, and you never let your gaurd down until that baby is in your arms! Enjoy your pregnany PM me if you just to talk or have any questions
