Will I bleed too much if I take Fragmin when menstruating?

I'm going on a 4.5 hour flight to Cyprus, I normally only take 75mg daily of aspirin. My GP said its up to me if I take Fragmin or not and I thought better to be on the safe side. GP said aspirin and flight socks, water and walking around for just 4.5 should be ok but I worry. My concern is that when we fly I'm due to start my period. If I've injected Fragmin surely Ill bleed loads!!!!! Can I bleed so much it won't stop? I should be looking forward to this trip but I'm just worried sick now.......Help Wickers

It is very unfair of your GP to say it is up to you, he should be pro active in your care.

Have you been confirmed as having APS by a rheumatologist, and did they prescribe fragmin for you?

I believe you may not need an aspirin as well as fragmin for the flight either but your GP should advise you.

With regards to your question, I noticed a change though not too drastic on warfarin but as I was 44 I'm sure age was playing a part too. I have not ever felt that periods went out of control when I have used fragmin too.

I do hope that helps.
