I was in the hospital last January, and had two blood clots and a pulmonary embolism. I have been on blood thinners for a year, but should be off of them in about 6 months. I am getting contradictory information as to whether or not I should try to have another child. I have been told by my hematologist that I would have to be on an injected blood thinner during the pregnancy. I don't feel really good about this. My surgeon is telling me that I should never even try again. He won't give me a real clear reason for this. My general practicioner is saying that there are alternatives to taking the blood thinner injections while pregnant, and he doesn't see a problem with it. I really don't know what to do or think, and I am not able to think about this in an unbiased way. I really want to have another baby, but I think I see intellectually that it might not be a good idea. Has anyone else ever been in this situation?Answer Question
