View Full Version : Did you need clexane while pregnant?
I am taking clexane whilst pregnant this time,as i have had 2 dvt's and a pe,and i have been told different things by different doctors.
The first said i would need to stop clexane at 36 weeks and need to be induced 2 weeks early,but the next doctor said,i wont have to do that,as i only take 40mg and it wont affect me.
So what happened for you?
I am just curious,and know it will be worked out in the end....well i hope so anyway.
I am currently on Clexane 60 mg twice a day. I am 33 weeks along and I have been told that I will have my medication changed at approx 38 weeks and then I will be on a different form of the drug that can be reversed in a hurry if necessary. I will also need to be on Clexane then Warfarin for about 2 months after birth as well.
I had numerous pe at approx 7 weeks preg so that is why i am having this treatment.
HTH and good luck
I was on fragmin injections last pg as I had about 20 superficial clots in my knee at 27wks. I went off the inj at 38wks as advised by a haemotologist and had new clots within 2 days, this time in my groin.
This pg I have had 1 clot in my knee at 10wks and I was given aspirin, which I will keep taking till 2wks post partum. Luckily the aspirin has controlled the clots - I hate injections.
I was on 40mg for the first 3 months but initially I was told (by my fertility specialist) that I would be on it until 37 weeks. I was planning a homebirth at the time and was told by a couple of midwives and also my regular obstetritian that it wouldn't be a barrier to homebirthing and that induction would not be necessary - rather an unnecessary precaution.
I sought a second opinion about the medication and consequently ceased the injections and also daily aspirin when I finished the first trimester. I have had no problems with the preg and am due to homebirth in Feb/March.
Good luck with your birth, I hope you find the answers you want.
