Just hormonal birth control and estrogens and some progesterones. What are you worried about in particular?

I haven't heard of anyone with FVL being unable to take those. Are you part of the FVL and Pregnancy group on Facebook (or just the FVL group there too)? There is lots of good advice in there.

I agree...as far as I know it is just hormone birth controls. Talk with your hematologist

 Did you check with the doctor? Is there anything that you shouldn't take with Factor V?

 I'm curious as I have it and I've just been told to take baby aspirin every day and when I'm pregnant and my hcg levels are higher than 600 then I start taking daily shots of blood thinner.
