Hello doctor,

I was wondering whether conceiving a second child will be safe after having a history of blood clots with first pregnancy and postpartum.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have a history of blood clot in the previous pregnancy. So there is more chance of blood clot in the second pregnancy as well. A thorough investigation should be done like PT, APTT, BT, coagulation profile, cardiolipin antibody estimation, etc., for you. The low dose of low molecular weight Heparin can be given in pregnancy to prevent blood clot as it does not cross the placenta. But you should discuss all these with your treating gynecologist.
