Some advice please. I'm due to get on a long haul flight - 12+ hours on the longer leg - and my ob wants me to take a blood thinning injection before the flight to prevent deep vein thrombosis. As well as wear those compression stockings. I will be 15 weeks along.
I'm 39 but can't see any other risk factors - 3 years ago when first pregnant I flew long distance and wasn't asked to do any of these - but it was a different ob.
My worry is that blood thinning injections may cause some sort of bleeding and that would be very worrying while in a foreign country!
Thoughts and advice please.
