INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE THROMBOPHILIA DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is thrombophilia?

Thrombophilia, also known as hypercoagulability is a tendency for blood to form clots. This can result from many different medical conditions, including pregnancy. In fact, as pregnancy advances, the coagulability of the blood increases until it reaches a peak around term (the 40th gestational week, the time when a term infant is born). The hypercoagulability state continues for several weeks after delivery. Thrombosis is clotting of blood inside a blood vessel, which obstructs the flow of blood through the vessel. Along with the pregnancy state itself, thrombophilia can be triggered by the presence of any of the following underlying genetic makeups: Factor V Leiden, Prothrombin Gene Variant, Antithrombin Deficiency, Protein C Deficiency, Protein S Deficiency, genetic tendency to form Lupus Anticoagulant, and Anticardiolipin Antibodies.
