  • Hi, I'd advise you to post this on the Hughes Syndrome forum where there are lots of lovely ladies who have been through this.

  • Hi what the website called

  • They have a page on here. But also have their own page - Hughes Sundrome Foundation.

  • Hi, I just had a little look at Wikipedia and Hughes syndrome is actually anti phospholipid syndrome which although causes clots is different from Leiden V deficiency. Wikipedia says there's a small chance of miscarriage and stillbirth with Leiden V. Pcos is a different condition altogether but can improve If you loose weight if you are overweight. However if you are trying to conceive or manage you need to be under a specialist as ur high risk of clots so I'd speak to your doctor about it.

  • Sorry - realised I got mixed up with the blood clotting tests. I was thinking of lupus anticoagulant. Even so, with a blood clotting disorder you should be asking about taking aspirin and heparin once pregnant.
