I'm a 23 year old that got a DVT(blood clot) from taking my birth control pills. I had no other risk factors for a DVT. It was a large blood clot and I still have a swollen leg after 1 1/2 months, though I am recovering.
The reason I'm writing to the pregnancy health board is because my concerns are for the future...when I decide to get pregnant. I would like to know if I would be in serious trouble if I got a blood clot while I was pregnant and what my odds would be for getting one.
I guess I'm curious to see what actually happens to a woman who gets a blood clot while she's pregnant because she can't take coumadin.
