I went to the ER today for chest pain. They did a bunch of tests to rule out PE. Before I left, they mentioned my OB ordered a Factor X-a test and she would have the results in about 3 days.
I've never heard of this and from what I'm gathering, it's a test to monitor my levels while on Lovenox, and the results will determine whether or not my dosage needs to be increased. Am I on the right track?
I didn't have my levels monitored with my previous pregnancies and I'm wondering if this is why my last two ended at 13 and 15 weeks.
During my first pregnancy my hematologist sent me for one of those blood tests once a trimester to make sure that my Lovenox dosage was still where it should be. I have not had one yet this pregnancy, but I also have not seen my hematologist yet.
