    Default On clexane I'm 6weeks 5 days pregnant spotting anyone else experienced this

    Hi all glad I found somewhere where I might be able to get some help.

    im currently 6 weeks 5 days pregnant I have quite a fue conditions to contend with I have had 5 previous miscarriages no live births so this is my 6th pregnancy.

    i have pcos which makes it hard to get pregnant

    I have a prothrombin clotting disorder

    i also have a chromosomal abnormality

    This pregnancy has been completely different to every other pregnancy as with all others I never had morning sickness or anything.

    doctors have put me on clexane and since being on the injection I have started to spot this start at 5 weeks I start bleeding about an hr or 2 after having my injection it's never goes onto a pad it's just there when I go to the toilet and then I stop in the late arvo.

    has anyone's else on clexane had bleeding in early pregnancy and had a successful pregnancy I'm having an ultrasound Monday morning I'm just stressing heaps.

    any advice and experience would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm on Clexane as part of an immune protocol for my IVf cycle.

    I had two bleeds at around 6 weeks (heavier than spotting) and know of a few others on here on Bubhub who have also had a bleed and/or spotting while on Clexane. It does seem somewhat 'par for the course'..
    I'm now almost 12 weeks and still on Clexane with no more bleeding/spotting.


    Try not to stress, spotting like your describing should be fine..
    Maybe, if your still worried try to take it 'easy' over the next couple of days until your scan if you can (take the opportunity to put your feet up!)
    - ie no heavy lifting etc.

    The waiting is often the hardest bit - it gives us all too much time to overthink stuff.. Especially so when we have had complications/failures in the past.
    Are you working with a FS as part of this pregnancy?
    If so there is medication that they can give you to help stop the bleeding. It's what they did with me.

    I'm so sorry about your miscarriages and current concerns. I hope baby is ok and this bleeding is nothing. I have the same issues as you, PCoS and genetic abnormality. We did IVF with PGD which is genetic testing telling you which embryos are viable and which are not and then only the good ones are transferred back. I sincerely hope this bleeding is nothing and you go on to have a fab pregnancy and take home baby, but if not I felt I needed to let you know about this PGD testing (maybe you already know about it) because it did the trick for us. Having a genetic issue is rubbish

    Hi hi I have heard of the PGD testing the week I found out I was pregnant I booked in with an ivf clinic in parramatta.


    how did the testing work if you don't mind me asking ?? Was it really expensive?

    Sorry - FS = fertility Specialist.
    (Usually a gyn/OB who specialises in infertility and fertility issues.)

    I would suggest given your history of miscarriages and knowledge of a genetic issue that you should be seeing one..

    As soon as we started having problems early in our attempts to conceive (TTC) our GP referred us to one and it was there that we found out about our underlying issues and better treatment options.

    As PP suggested PGD testing sounds like the way to go. It is done while doing an IVF cycle. Although it sounds like your pregnancy was a natural cycle?

    Have you notified your ob that you are spotting?
    When on clexane it is necessary to have regular scans as bleeds can occur internally (ie. aren't showing themselves externally - coming out). Internal bleeds can get large enough to end a pregnancy.
    Is your scan on Monday a regular one or did they book it for you because you are spotting? How many days wait was it from notifying them to your scan? They really shouldn't be leaving it too long in between as your ob should be able to adjust your protocol - or at least try if the pregnancy is being threatened.

    In saying all that for our last pregnancy I had two spotting type bleeds in the first trimester that went on for weeks and they were fine - I knew they were there because they were showing themselves externally but my ob wanted me scanned as soon as possible to know what was going on.
    In second trimester I went for a regular scan (I had lots to monitor blood flow and bleeding) and there was a large internal bleed. He had to change meds for a time and that saved the pregnancy.

    Hope it's just a little spotting for you and that your bub gets here in due time nice and safe x. Just make sure you are getting regular scans whilst on the clexane.

    I have an obgyn this this was natural but the fact that I miscarry is the issue and the fact that it can take me years to fall it doesn't just happen for me as I have pcos and don't ovulate
