I dont' have Factor V, but I did have a large DVT (iliac vein) during my last pregnancy (2001). The DVT went from my groin all the way to my knee, so it was pretty extensive and it is a miracle that I did not also have a Pulmonary Embolism.
I'm 8.2 weeks pregnant now and am considered high-risk because I'm 40 AND because of my previous DVT, so they are watching me closely. I am on 40mg Lovenox 1x/day and am sure they will up my dose very quickly to 2x a day. I have had friends on these shots and 2x / day seems to be the "norm".
It's been pretty painless for me to do and really no big deal, and for treatment of our clotting / blood disorders it's a necessary thing for both you and the little cookin' bean
Thank you for your response. I was just curious sinc my sister who has this disorder but has never clot just gave birth and she was on 1 shot per day. I have a friend who has a disorder and she is also on 1x per day. Look- I would do it once an hour if they told me I had too. ANYTHING to sustain this pregg...lol... Thank you for your input
