I had a blood clot when I was on the pill, I was told this is common. I stopped the pill immediately.
Then 5 years later I fell pregnant with my first child yet again I ended up with another blood clot.
Tests were done nothing showed up.
Soon as I fell pregnant with my 2nd child I went onto heparin and warfrin just incase I had another blood clot.
My daughter is now 17 and I've just flew back from holiday with a massive clot from my groin right down to my knee.
I'm lucky to be alive.
I've got factor 5 leiden but I've never had any check ups in 17 years. This is very scary as I flew abroad at easter too. I've been like a ticking time bomb.
I'm now on warfrin and will continue for life.
