I am homozygous, two copies of the dreaded C gene... never took Lovenox, only baby aspirin. Both RE (from THE top clinic in US) and OB said you don't need Lovenox (and in fact it would be dangerous to take it) as your homocysteine levels were never that high. And, I had a history of m/c prior to achieving success with DE.Agree that 2 copies of the C gene appears to be considered higher risk for m/c issues, but that using Lovenox after 2 miscarriages may be of benefit regardless.
Just to point out that in the case if APS for example, Lovenox AND aspirin would be a standard protocol as aspirin has a different but essential action on platelets that is particularly essential in the treatment of APS. So despite your worries about bleeding (which is NOT necessarily across the board with aspirin and lovenox by the way), this could be one exception don't you think??
I am continually astounded about the amount of info I gain from this group.Hi ladies,
Not sure if any of you remember me, I had two miscarriages with donor egg (got pregnant both times, miscarried both time). I am hoping for any insight you guys might have!
The D&C came back normal chromosomally (female though, so could be erroneous).
All my immune and clotting tests came back NORMAL, except MTHFR BUT i do not have elevated homocysteine levels so Dr said it was not relevant (apparently almost 1/2 the population has a mutation here, only a certain one causes problems).
My RE wants to go ahead with the last embryos we have, using low dose aspirin (we used this before, he uses it on all his patients) and Lovenox as a protective measure. My Gyno wants to me to go see a reproductive immunologist, who can rule out anything else before we cycle with our last embryos (why do the stakes have to be so high?). I have scheduled this appointment but am freaking out as we are now self pay and I know the reproductive immune stuff can be waaaaaay pricey.
Anyway, I am wanting to know what you guys think: 2 miscarriages (one after heartbeat!) and no apparent problems?? Any thoughts?
