hi & welcome...i'm also on Lovenox + baby aspirin until around 36 weeks when they'll flip me to Heparin until delivery & then back onto Lovenox for i think 4-6 weeks after baby is born...i'm on it because of gene mutation (Factor II) & elevated anticardiolipins.

To answer your question, i'm constantly scared that the blood thinners might not be enough, and in my case the Lovenox appears to be causing some liver damage - that's now being monitored and if it gets worse not sure what next step will be. Lovenox is known for causing temporary, usually reversible, liver issues but in my case the results are more elevated than they would have anticipated given the short timeframe i've been on it.

But my understanding is that normally the bloodthinners work just fine and with a history of clot issue already i'd imagine they'll track you closely and adjust dosage level upwards if they're concerned. I wouldn't let the worry about them scare you off of TTCing. Good luck to you!!
