hoping someone can shed some more light on this, my drs dont seem to know too much..
10 years ago, I had 4 miscarriages, and after some blood tests was told that I had tested positive for lupus anticoagulants. Its never really been explained as to what exactly it is, I saw a specialist, I think he was an immunologist, who told me to stay away from eostrogen based birth control, take aspirin during pregnancy, take aspirin before flying, and just stay away from anything that could increas my blood clotting risk.
recently my period has gone very bad, long lasting, extremely heavy, had to take medication to get it to stop, the latest the hospital gave me came with a big warning of blood clotting risk, so this brought up the discussion and its made me wonder if the LA is related to the bleeding? I also have an underactive thyroid, which is a recent thing, can that be connected to the LA??
Can the LA get worse as we get older?
And then I just came across Hughes syndrom, is that the same thing?
This is all confusing stuff, I always thought I didnt really have to worry about it, but it now seems that maybe I do?
