I get why docs would say no to the lovenox, but why'd they say no to the LDA Jean? I know it's not a silver bullet, but everything I've read seems to say it does more good than harm.

I don't really know how to evaluate these studies, but I was able to find the whole study and noticed that it was a pretty small sample of women and was not randomized as to which group they were in. It also didn't seem like they did much matching between the 2 groups as to age, bmi, time between pregnancies, etc. I will be seeing a Peri again in April and will bring this up with him though. So far the two Peris I have seen have both said no to the LMWH just citing not enough evidence of its benefit, but it sure seems to work around here (anecdotally).

I asked my MFM and hematologist about this recently and they both basically said it depends on wether or not the effects of being on anticoagulants outweighs the effects of preeclampsia. I will be on lovenox and LDA because of early onset preeclampsia and for having a blood clot in my leg postpartum. Both of those out weigh the risk of being on anticoagulants in my situation... but I guess some others don't have it so bad? I'm not really sure. I didn't think I had it so bad until my doctors basically had to spell it out for me. Have you asked your doctor? I am curious to see what other people have to say about this.

Even though this study is a few years old, I find it still interesting. I could not find any other studies to contradict this. Following the results of this study, shouldn't then all women during subsequent pregnancies be taking LDA plust Heparin (Lovenox)? From what I read on these boards not everybody is on Lovenox, but almost everybody is taking LDA. ... in%20Alone
