Most people with factor V Leiden never develop abnormal clots. However, some people with factor V Leiden develop clots that lead to long-term health problems or become life-threatening.
Both men and women can have factor V Leiden, but women may have an increased tendency to develop blood clots during pregnancy or when taking the hormone estrogen.
If you have factor V Leiden and have developed blood clots,
medications can lessen your risk of developing additional blood clots
and help you avoid potentially serious complications.
I had at lease 1 miscarriage (between 9-10 weeks) and now I am 12 weeks. I am label high risk, which I know I was going to be because of the factor V leiden and I also see a blood specialist. My OB/GYN said that we are going to have a schedule delivery (a week early) and she also said that I can deliver naturally (no c-section). However, I feel that I am not going to have all natural birth that I want. I feel that is going to c-section and all kind of medications.
I guest I want to know what other mother experience is/was?
