Was it decided for you to take Lovenox WHILE TTC or  AFTER +BFP [+Beta]???

Just curious what others' plans are...[I will start injections once I have a +Beta].

Thanks in advance.

With my clotting disorder I am taking lovenox while TTC.  I will then continue the lovenox while I am pregnant.  I take shots twice a day.

I had early onset severe HELLP and pre-eclampsia in my first pregnancy-but tested clear for a clotting disorder- so in the next pregnancy the MFM will start me on blood thinners (I'm guessing Lovenox but don't know for sure) at 6 weeks, and I'll start baby aspirin as soon as I get a BFP.

I know that most of the women with clotting disorders and that had pre-e on the Pre-eclampsia Foundation forums usually don't start it until after a BFP also, but I guess it depends on the doctor and patient.

They said that they do not want me getting pregnant while I am on coumadin which is what I am usually on when I am not TTC.  If I am not on anything  I will get a clot very quickly.  Once I am pregnant they will also put me on  a baby aspirin.

I took baby aspirin while TTC.  As soon as I got my BFP my hematologist put me on 40mg Lovenox 1x a day.  I have protein S deficiency so early lovenox is important for me because it prevents a blood clot while the placenta is forming.

I start it 5 days past trigger.. 2-3 dpo. 

I tend to m/c just after 4 weeks, so they want me on it sooner.. 

I am homozygous for MTHFR and tested highly positive for APA's and ANA's (i think that was the 3rd one). So lots of clotting problems on my end. no fun.

With both of my pregnancies that ended in live births, I began Lovenox the day I got my BFP. I was already taking baby aspirin.

I think it really depends on your diagnosis and what the doc would like.
