I just heard from an RE at IVF-Phoenix, who says:
The use of heparin or lovenox is not to anticlot a person, but to stimulate nitric oxide synthetase (NOS) activity to increase NO, and hence optimize the uterine environment.
I never knew that. I only knew about the anti-clotting part, so I always resisted it.
ETA: cny doesn't use heparin, just lovenox. Dr. K has been suggesting it for me and I've been resisting. I don't test + for immune issues, but IVF Phoenix caught my attention with their heparin/endometrium protocol.
can cost about $1,200 for five days..
The RE who gave you that info should be better informed..the latest results show no increased pg rates in women using lovenox or heparin without a clotting diagnosis.
