Hello! Ok, long story short. I was diagnosed after my last miscarriage with Factor V Leiden. I lost my first baby at 11 weeks and the second one at 9 weeks. My doctor told me that I am only heterogenous so I would only need baby aspirin, folic acid, B6 and B12. My specialist also said the same thing. I don't have an appointment with the specialist until June 22nd which will put me at 11 weeks. I'm so scared because I'm reading that even people with the hetero gene have been put on blood thinners just in case. Last year, the specialist said that if we have another loss then we will talk about putting me on a blood thinner. Why must I have another loss and not be put on it as a safety precaution?? Should I get a second opinion? I love my doctor and don't want to go behind her back, I just feel like they are not doing enough to save this baby and make sure I don't miscarry again. Has anyone ever been on just baby aspirin for Factor V and had a successful pregnancy?Answer Question
